About the Series
In the Chinese zodiacal calendar the passage of 60 years marks the completion of a full cycle. The People’s Republic of China has now entered its second cycle, and the prognosticators are busy contemplating how it will unfold. The Asian Studies Program has invited four experts on contemporary China to share their visions of where China has been and where it is likely to be going. The series starts with the question, “How Fragile is China?” and then considers separately the role of China’s military, the significance of electoral reform, and the unsettled and unsettling question of China’s minority nationality policies.
