A China Scholar's Long March, 1978-2015 : Reflections on a Changing China, Hardback Book

A China Scholar's Long March, 1978-2015 : Reflections on a Changing China Hardback

Description

A China Scholar' Long March is a collection of fifty pieces written between 1978 and 2015 by Charles Horner, a China Scholar, a former U.S. government official, and the author of the two-volume work Rising China and Its Postmodern Fate.

The pieces originally appeared in general interest publications such as The American Interest, The National Interest, and Commentary; in newspapers like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post; and in some more specialized periodicals such as China Heritage Quarterly and the Naval War College Review. The first piece dates from 1978, when the so-called `Rise of China' was about to begin and, as such, Horner's writings span a generation of China's trying to make sense of its own rise and of American scholars and commentators trying to make sense of it also.

Horner's 1992 article, `China on the Rise' is now bracketed, a quarter century later, by a growing sense that the so-called Rise of China is coming to an end, and that a generation of commentary about it is about to come to an end along with it.
