Book Talk: A conversation with the author of “Challenging China”
As people are discovering in recent months--whether in Alaska, Japan or Canada--U.S. presidents may come and go but thorny issues with China remain. In Challenging China, a new book published in early April of this year, Seattle's own Sam Kaplan asserts China has become more authoritarian and expansionist and describes what strategies the U.S. and its allies need to adopt to address this new geopolitical landscape. Although delving into serious issues, the book is written in an engaging way and probably the only book on China that references Dolly Parton, the boy band BTS, LeBron James, the movie, Die Hard, and Bruce Springsteen. In the book, Kaplan asserts that a more authoritarian, more expansionist China is one of the four most important issues in the world. Kaplan analyzes China's economic future, how it is changing the world order and what that means for the U.S and its allies.
Join us for a conversation with Sam led by Ann Tyson, the China correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor.
