Join us for a book launch and discussion with Julian Baird Gewirtz, author of Unlikely Partners: Chinese Reformers, Western Economists, and the Making of Global China. Unlikely Partners recounts the story of how Chinese politicians and intellectuals looked beyond their country’s borders for economic guidance at a key crossroads in the nation’s tumultuous twentieth century. It is a dramatic tale of competition for influence between reformers and hardline conservatives during the Deng Xiaoping era, bringing to light China’s productive exchanges with the West.
