18 April 2013

Will China's rise be 'peaceful', or something the world outside needs to be apprehensive about? Join our China-watching experts Dr 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 Kerry Brown.

Presented by the University of Sydney.
