The China Challenge as Myth and Reality

Philippe Roman Chair inaugural public lecture


Few countries have experienced changes as dramatic as did China in the past century — and the past quarter century in particular. From a "revolutionary country" to a "status quo power," and from an "outsider" to an "insider" of the existing international system, the realities of the grand transformation in China's state, society and international outlook have often been obscured by all kinds of myths. For the purpose of highlighting the realities and deconstructing the myths, Professor Chen discusses the origins, processes and implications of China's rise from the perspective of a historian of China's international relations.

Chen Jian is the Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs at LSE for 2008/09. Professor Chen also serves as the Michael J Zak Chair of the History of US China Relations at Cornell University and is a distinguished research scholar, writer and teacher. He is author of Mao's China and the Cold War and China's Road to the Korean War: the making of the Sino-American confrontation, which is regarded as a modern classic, and shared honours for the 2005 Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Documentary Research for Declassifed: Nixon in China.
