As China transformed into a global economic superpower, its foreign policy also changed, becoming more assertive and aggressive in words and in actions. President Xi Jingping’s “fighting spirit” plays well at home even as—or because—it feeds concern abroad about China’s rise. What has motivated this more confrontational style of diplomatic relations? And what does this mean for U.S.-China relations? Join the World Affairs Council on November 4 for a discussion with Peter Martin, correspondent for Bloomberg News and author of China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy.
Peter Martin’s book is available from Third Place Books here.
