Please join us as Professor David Bachman examines the last 100 years of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and looks ahead to what we might expect for the future of the CCP and China as a whole. The first hour of this online program will consist of a presentation by Professor Bachman, and the second hour will be dedicated to questions and comments from participants. Participants will also receive a free copy of the book The Chinese Communist Party: A Century in 10 Lives, by Timothy Cheek, Klaus Mühlhahn and Hans Van de Ven.
