The Rise, Fall, and Rise of China

As part of the 2020-21 EASC Guest Speaker Series, USC Postdoctoral Scholar and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Political Science & International Relations, Hao Chen has invited Yuhua Wang, Frederick S. Danziger Associate Professor in the Department of Government (Harvard University). This lecture, The Rise, Fall, and Rise of China, will tie in with Dr. Chen's IR 340; The Political Economy of China course. The course surveys the political and economic development of the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to very recently, the Xi Administration and highlights the interaction between the state and business in the reform era (1978 - present).

Professor Wang is a leading scholar in the field of China studies and has published extensively on state-business relations in contemporary China. His research has focused on the emergence and constraints of state institutions, with a regional focus on China and is the author of Tying the Autocrat’s Hands: The Rise of the Rule of Law in China (Cambridge University Press, 2015). In the article published in The China Quarterly, “Beyond Local Protectionism: China’s State-Business Relations in the Last Two Decades,” he conducted a large-scale, systematic study on all Chinese public listed firms from 1993 to 2012 and challenged the popular argument that businesses in China have primarily relied on ties with local governments. He is currently working on a new book "The Rise and Fall of the Chinese State, 618-1911" (under contract at Princeton University Press) to examine the long-term state development in China.
