New the site this time, three recent essays on Sino-American relations:
Gan Yang, “Thucydides and the ‘Thucydides Trap’”;
Liu Xiaofeng, “The Historical Paradox of the Idea of the Great Atlantic Revolution”; and
Jiang Shigong, “Commerce and Human Rights, Part One: World Empire and the Roots of American Behavior.”
I particularly recommend Gan Yang’s piece, which is timely and thought-provoking.
And for a change of pace, Selena Orly has translated an interview with the sociologist Li Yinhe, China’s leading scholar of sex and LGBTQ issues.
I might note as well that the Center for Advanced Chinese Research’s Party Watch Annual Report for 2021 has just come out. I was pleased to have been asked to contribute.
