This group, which started in October 2012, discusses the impact of China’s rise on the rest of the world and how it is likely to affect us. It is led by Barnaby Powell, who has written three books on the meaning of China with Alex Mackinnon.
The aims of the group are:-
To hasten understanding of China and its culture
To share information and research findings on China
To discuss and assess the effects of China’s influence and its balance of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ power
‘2018 – China goes Critical’, their latest practitioner’s book, can be accessed as an Ebook on Amazon Kindle (http:/www.amazon.co.uk/2018-China-goes-Critical-ebook/dp/B00D56X371) or by simply googling ‘Barnaby Powell China’ to access the site directly.
This book demonstrates the historical waves of chaos that continue to shape modern China – from Sun Yatsen’s revolution to the Bo Xilai affair – and considers the scale of challenges facing the new Communist Party leadership.
