The World Affairs Council of Western Michigan Presents this Great Decisions Foreign Policy Discussion Series Event:
James Fallows, National Correspondent, The Atlantic
China’s new leaders emphasize the “peaceful” nature of their country’s meteoric rise, and their own determination to begin a new era of economic liberalization and reform. Yet frictions between China and its neighbors in Asia have only increased in the past year, and every day brings news of increasing press and political crackdowns within China. How should Americans judge the positive and negative signs from today’s China–and the opportunities or points of conflict that China’s rise creates?
James Fallows is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and has written for the magazine since the late 1970s. He has reported extensively from outside the United States and once worked as President Carter’s chief speechwriter. His latest book is China Airborne.
