New on the website this week:
Xu Jilin, "The New Tianxia: Rebuilding China's Internal and External Order"
Like Ge Zhaoguang's "If Horses had Wings," Xu's essay is a response to New Confucians and others who insist on the "uniqueness" of China's civilization. But where Ge attacks Mainland New Confucians head on, Xu attempts a reappropriation of China's tradition for liberal ends. Enjoy!
Coming soon: Xu Zhangrun on "China's Moment in World History" and Qin Hui on "Only China Can Save Socialism"
