Debating China

2:30 - 3:45 PM EST

There is no bilateral relationship in the world more consequential than the one between the United States and China. How they choose to cooperate and compete affects billions of lives. But U.S.-China relations are complex, sensitive, and often very difficult to navigate.

In her new book Debating China, Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Nina Hachigian pairs Chinese and American experts in a series of letter exchanges to illuminate this multidimensional relationship. These fascinating conversations—written by highly respected scholars and former officials from China and America—provide an invaluable dual perspective on crucial issues such as trade, human rights, territorial disputes, military dynamics, the media, climate change, development, and more. The engaging dialogue between American and Chinese experts gives readers an inside view of how both sides see these key challenges.

Join us at the book launch for a conversation with a key architect and implementer of U.S.-China policy, White House Senior Director for Asian Affairs Evan Medeiros, to discuss a wide range of issues animating the U.S.-China relationship.

Copies of Debating China will be available for purchase at the event.
