Thursday 1 November 2012, 6:30pm

Old Theatre. Old Building

Speaker: Professor Arne Westad; Chair: Professor Michael Cox

LSE IDEAS Public Lecture and Book Launch

In his new book, Arne Westad argues that China's role in international affairs over the past 250 years has been determined by the country's restless irresolution as well as by its immense capacity for change. In this lecture he will discuss the significance of China's past for its behaviour in international affairs today.
