While some Western governments may look at China’s rise with anxiety and some with awe, many Chinese see their country’s growing prominence on the global stage as a return to a natural state of affairs. In an insightful historical survey, journalist and author Michael Schuman examines how the Chinese view their past and their place in the world—and how that affects their present policices and ambitions. He shows how there is no such thing as “world history,” since everyone’s view of the past depends on where they come from. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.
Michael Schuman is a journalist and author who has lived and worked in Asia since 1996. His new book, Superpower Interrupted: The Chinese History of the World, was released in June 2020 by publisher PublicAffairs. His earlier works are Confucius and the World He Created (Basic Books, 2015) and The Miracle: The Epic Story of Asia’s Quest for Wealth (HarperBusiness, 2009). Mr. Schuman is currently a columnist for Bloomberg Opinion and a contributor to The Atlantic, among other publications. Previously, he was a correspondent for The Wall Street Journal and Time.
