The Sigur Center for Asian Studies
is launching its latest series, New Books in Asian Studies, with award-winning journalist Dexter Tiff Roberts
for the inaugural book launch. The Myth of Chinese Capitalism: The Worker, the Factory, and the Future of the World
is the untold story of how restrictive policies are preventing China from becoming the world’s largest economy by focusing on the people in a Guizhou village and a Guangzhou factory town. It
explores the reality behind today’s financially-ascendant China and pulls the curtain back on how the Chinese manufacturing machine is actually powered. The lively book launch and Q&A will be moderated by GW Law Professor and Chinese specialist Donald Clarke
. Advance registration required.
