Tiger Head, Snake Tails, China Today: How it Got There and Where it is Heading

LSE IDEAS public lecture

In this event to mark the publication of his new book, 'In Tiger Head, Snake Tails, China Today: How it Got There and Where it is Heading', Jonathan Fenby will draw together the political, economic and social aspects of today's China to give a unique overview of the emerging superpower. His book also covers foreign relations, history and its heritage, regional matters, demography, the environment, corruption and the "trust deficit". It concludes with an account of the new leaders who will take over running China from the end of this year and assess the challenges they will face.

Jonathan Fenby is a British journalist and former editor of The Observer newspaper 1993-1995 and the South China Morning Post 1995-2000.
