New on the site this time:
A text by Wang Huning, Politiburo member and arguably China’s most powerful intellectual, “Reflections on the Cultural Revolution and the Reform of China's Political System.” In fact, this is a 2012 revision of a text Wang originally wrote in 1986. The translation is a collaboration between me and Matthew D. Johnson, Founder and Principal of AltaSilva LLC. Matt and I will be offering more translations of Wang’s work in the coming weeks and months. Two texts are basically finished, and I discovered yesterday that several quite recent talks, interviews, and essays by Wang have been added to Aisixiang.
In addition, for our Youth Concerns project, Freya Ge and I offer the translation of an interesting essay by Xiong Wenchun, “Polarization: The Structure of the Education System Behind the Culture of Migrant Workers’ Children”.
And finally, an addition to our Spanish-language translations: Xie Tao, "2020: Las relaciones sino-estadounidenses y la política americana en tiempos de pandemia." Thanks to Ugo Armanini for his help in polishing the translation.
