Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China

March 10, 2017 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Harvard Book Store welcomes Harvard graduate and Rhodes Scholar JULIAN GEWIRTZ for a discussion of his book, Unlikely Partners: Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China.

Unlikely Partners recounts the story of how Chinese politicians and intellectuals looked beyond their country’s borders for economic guidance at a key crossroads in the nation’s tumultuous twentieth century. Julian Gewirtz offers a dramatic tale of competition for influence between reformers and hardline conservatives during the Deng Xiaoping era, bringing to light China’s productive exchanges with the West.
