What you'll learn in this history lesson:

China’s 2025 technology program and One Belt, One Road initiative underscores her ambitions for hegemony. 

Yet, as China takes its place in the modern world, it faces immense difficulties: a growing inequality gap, widespread corruption and rampant pollution, all of which provoke mounting calls for political reform. The presentation will examine the future of U.S.-China relations in light of ongoing conflicts on trade, military and other issues. We will examine China’s past, from ancient times onward, and explore its history, philosophies and traditions to try to better understand the underlying forces that explain China today.
