David Shambaugh of George Washington University on "Assessing China's Future"

Mar 5, 2018

Our guest on ST is David Shambaugh, the Director of the China Policy Program at George Washington University. A widely recognized authority on contemporary China and the international relations of Asia, Shambaugh has visited or lived in China every year since 1979, and he recently gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled "Assessing China's Future." Shambaugh's latest book -- likewise called "China's Future" -- was thus praised by the scholarly journal known as Europe-Asia Studies: "[The author] skilfully negotiates the tightrope between speculation and quantitative evidence and, in doing so, offers a valuable insight into the social contexts at play in postulating the probable future pathways that China may pursue."
