China’s Cultural Revolution featuring Professor Andrew G. Walder

Join this online workshop featuring a talk by Stanford Professor Andrew G. Walder on his latest book, "Civil War in Guangxi: The Cultural Revolution on China's Southern Periphery" (2023), and a demo of SPICE’s curriculum unit, "China’s Cultural Revolution."

In his new book, Professor Walder provides a groundbreaking new analysis of one the most shocking chapters of the Cultural Revolution. In the summer of 1968, Guangxi became notorious as the site of the most severe and extensive violence observed anywhere in China during that period. With evidence from a vast collection of classified materials, the book reconsiders explanations for the upheaval that draw parallels with ethnic cleansing in Rwanda, Bosnia, and other settings.
