New on the site this fortnight, three translations of recent essays discussing China’s views of America, both in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, and the anti-racism protests provoked by the death of George Floyd.
Xu Jinlin, "Looking at American Political Correctness and Identity Politics through the Lens of the Anti-Racist Movement"
Yuan Peng, "Political Gamesmanship and American Chaos"
Yuan Peng, "The Coronavirus Pandemic and a Hundred-Year Change"
I am also delighted to make available an essay by my Sino-French friend and scholar Ji Zhe, “The ‘China Virus’ and its Mutation”
Enjoy! Next time, Chinese Trump supporters.
