Americans look to China with fascination and fear, unsure whether the rising Asian power is friend or foe but certain it will play a crucial role in America’s future. This is nothing new, Professor Gordon Chang says. For centuries, Americans have been convinced of China’s importance to their own national destiny. Professor Chang’s recently published book, Fateful Ties, draws on literature, art, biography, popular culture, and politics to trace America’s long and varied preoccupation with China.

Join us for a dinner discussion, as Professor Chang shares his insights from his book, Fateful Ties, which can be purchased on Amazon.com.

Professor Chang will be autographing his book, Fateful Ties, at the talk.

Seating is limited, so please register early.

Sponsored by the Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (“A4P”), Princeton Club of Northern California (“PCNC”), the Stanford Asian Pacific American Alumni Club (“SAPAAC”), and the Forum for American/Chinese Exchange at Stanford(“FACES”).
