This is a book talk open USC students and general public who are interested in the relationship between the U.S. and China. Guest speaker and author Suisheng Zhao will share about his book for the first 45 minutes and have a Q&A session afterwards.

Big countries are supposed to define their foreign policies according to permanent geostrategic interests. Yet China's foreign policy over the seventy-plus years of the people's republic has gone through transformations so remarkable that structural theories cannot explain them. In this deeply informed study, Zhao shows that the twists and turns in China's relationship with the world were imposed by the powerful visions of three transformational leaders — Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Xi Jinping. Understanding how these leaders saw the world and how they tried to change it is essential if we are to understand where Xi Jinping intends to lead China.
