Victor Shih will talk about his new book 'Economic Shocks and Authoritarian Stability', which is a new volume of edited essays that homes in on the economic challenges facing authoritarian regimes through a set of comparative case studies that include China and Taiwan. Through these comparative case studies, this volume provides readers with the analytical tools for assessing whether the current round of economic shocks will lead to political instability or even regime change among the world’s autocracies.

Victor C. Shih is Ho Miu Lam Chair and Associate Professor in China and Pacific Relations at the University of California San Diego, specializing in China. He is the author of 'Factions and Finance in China: Elite Conflict and Inflation, published by Cambridge University Press.
