Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China’s Push for Global Power by Howard French

This free online book group for NCTA alumni will examine the ways in which China’s cultural and historical legacies are currently shaping its drive to reestablish itself as the dominant power in Asia. Former New York Times reporter Howard French draws on his extensive experience and deep research to offer important insights into how the Chinese view their experience of humiliation at the hands of Western powers and their desire to return to what they see as their rightful place among world powers. The projection of Chinese military power in the South China Sea is just one example of China’s ambitions regarding their territorial claims reaching back centuries.
