HOWARD W. FRENCH at Folio
Co-presented with the GARDNER CENTER FOR ASIAN ART & IDEAS, WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL & WASHINGTON STATE CHINA RELATIONS COUNCIL.
A leading journalist who has written for both the New York Times and Washington Post, and who was here not that long ago for his prescient book on China in Africa, A Continent for the Taking, Howard French returns with a very timely new book, Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China’s Push for Global Power (Knopf).
“Taking full account of China’s achievements and ambitions, without being panicked by them or losing sight of China’s vulnerabilities, will be a major challenge for the next generation in the rest of the world—and in China itself. Howard French very lucidly lays out a guide to thinking about the next stage in China’s evolution, and the positive signs and danger signals to be watching for.” —James Fallows.
Howard French will also be speaking at a breakfast presented by the World Affairs Council on Wednesday, March 22 at 7:30 a.m. at the Rainier Club. Please see www.world-affairs.org for more information.
