Kerry Brown, a leading China scholar based in London, discusses the challenges of 2020 and the growing need to understand China and its history. Berkshire first published This Is China: The First 5,000 Years in 2010. Professor Brown has now updated the book in a second edition with a new chapter on recent developments.

Listen to the podcast to hear why are stories so important in understanding China, and how the chapter “China Today” might easily be called “Xi Jinping’s China.” As Brown explains, “If China is going to be more significant and prominent, which is almost certain, if we’re going to have arguments with China, we may as well know what we’re talking about.” In the book itself, he provides insightful answers to today’s questions about the world’s newest superpower and offers an engaging framework for understanding its meteoric rise.
