As anticipated, we first proposed the full text of Xi Jinping’s speech for the CCP center, without edit and without comments. Now, we propose a discussion among experts in order to deepen the topic with friends Kerry Brown, Rana Mitta and Linda Jaivin (which I hope to meet soon). Here is the summary of this short podcast. To learn together, beyond the slogans, from the experts.
Founded in 1921 by 13 men inspired by the Bolshevik Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party now has 92 million members and is undoubtedly the most powerful political party in the world. Leading Sinologists Kerry Brown, Director of the Lau China Institute at King’s College London; Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the University of Oxford and Linda Jaivin, the author of The Shortest History of China discuss the extraordinary rise of Chinese Communist Party, the philosophy that underpins it, and where it might lead China next.
