September 7, 2017

6:30pm – 8:00pm

A discussion with Richard McGregor, Ian Buruma and Susan Shirk, moderated by Orville Schell

ChinaFile is pleased to host the launch of a new book by Financial Times correspondent Richard McGregor: Asia’s Reckoning: China, Japan, and the Fate of U.S. Power in the Pacific Century. McGregor, who spent many years covering Japan and China for major newspapers, explores the long-smoldering enmity between the two great East Asian rivals and the way its resurgence threatens not only America’s position in the Pacific but also the global economy. Drawing on both deep archival research and interviews with major diplomatic players, McGregor reveals both the architecture that has held the region together in the postwar era and the forces that threaten to tear it apart. >>More information on upcoming event
