Linda Jaivin & Kevin Rudd in conversation
May 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm Australia/Melbourne
Linda Jaivin & Kevin Rudd in conversation discuss Linda Jaivin’s book, The Shortest History of China.
The Shortest History of China is a nimble history of rogues, revolutions and rebellions. It can be read in a day, but will transform your view for a lifetime. From kung-fu to tofu, tea to trade routes, sages to silk, China has influenced cuisine, commerce, military strategy, aesthetics and philosophy across the world for thousands of years.
Certainly, Linda distils a vast history into a short. It’s a readable account that tells you what you need to know. From China’s philosophical origins to its political system, to the COVID-19 pandemic and where the PRC is likely to lead the world.
