Just added to the site: Qin Hui, "Dilemmas of Twenty-First Century Globalization: Explanations and Solutions, with a Critique of Thomas Piketty's Twenty-First Century Capitalism". A rousing liberal tour de force.
A couple of news items: Tim Cheek and I penned a piece on "Making China Marxist Again" that just came out in Dissent magazine. Our text is largely based on Jiang Shigong's “Philosophy and History: Interpreting the ‘Xi Jinping Era’ through Xi’s Report to the Nineteenth National Congress of the CCP”
New to the web site this month: Xu Zhangrun, “China’s Moment in World History: A 'Chinese Consciousness' Created by the 'China Problem'". Xu is best known for his essay "Imminent Fears, Immediate Hopes" published this summer.
