Linda Jaivin & Rick Morton in Conversation about The Shortest History of China at Honkas Bar organized by Potts Point Bookshop.
Certainly, In The Shortest History of China Linda Jaivin distils a vast history into a short, readable account. It tells you what you need to know. From China’s philosophical origins to its political system, to the COVID-19 pandemic. China’s past is key to the modern world. This nimble history of rogues, revolutions and rebellions can be read in a day, but will transform your view for a lifetime.
Moreover, globally minded readers will find everything they need to know about this rising superpower. The rarely told story of women in China, from the earliest warriors to twentieth-century suffragettes. China’s path from its tribal origins to the modern Communist Party under Xi Jinping. And the historical specters of corruption and disunity that continue to haunt the nation today.
Joined by journalist and author Rick Morton, join us with a glass of wine as Linda Jaivin discusses China’s sprawling and gloriously messy history, and its future.
