U.S. Book Launch for “China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy”
June 7, 2021 • 9:30 – 10:30 am EDT
Please join the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics for the U.S. book launch of Peter Martin’s China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy. In the book, Martin charts China's transformation from an isolated and impoverished Communist state to a global superpower from the perspective of those on the front lines – China’s diplomats. Drawing for the first time on the memoirs of more than a hundred retired diplomats as well as from Martin's first-hand reporting as a journalist in Beijing, this groundbreaking book blends history with current events to tease out enduring lessons and paint in vivid detail the kind of power China is set to become.
Following an initial presentation by author Peter Martin, Bonnie Glaser, Director of the Asia Program at the German Marshall Fund will offer commentary on the key takeaways of the book. Freeman Chair Jude Blanchette and Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy will co-host and also offer their reactions.
