China is becoming the key economy of the current era. It's tipped to overtake the USA within 10 years. But what other effects will economic power have on China? Will China's rise be 'peaceful', or something the world outside needs to be apprehensive about? Join our China-watching experts Professor Bates Gill (Rising Star: China's New Security Diplomacy), Mobo Gao (The Battle of China's Past: Mao and the Cultural Revolution) and Feng Chongji (The Chinese Communist Party: from Chen Duxiu to Li Shenzhi) as they discuss with Professor Kerry Brown.
