Join us for an event featuring Dr. Susan L. Shirk, Research Professor & Chair of 21st Century China Center at the University of California, San Diego’s School of Global Policy & Strategy. Dr. Shirk will join us for a conversation on her new book Overreach, a follow-up to Shirk’s influential China: Fragile Superpower.
Dr. Susan L. Shirk is one of the most knowledgeable scholars in the US on China, and she uses her unparalleled insider contacts and decades of research experience to full force in her new book. As the Chinese Communist Party Congress convenes in fall 2022, Dr. Shirk’s perspective will be essential for understanding Xi’s leadership style and how countries like the US should act in response to China’s overreach in the years to come. Overreach will be released in October 2022.
