Studying Chinese Politics with Professor David Shambaugh
Workshop with Professor Shambaugh, George Washington University
How has the field of study of Chinese politics evolved in the West during the seventy years of the People’s Republic of China? In this lecture/discussion Professor Shambaugh will describe six “generations” of academic scholarship in the West (mainly USA), the main emphases of each generation, the principal paradigms that have been in “vogue,” the primary sources each had access to and how they shaped analysis, impediments to research and understanding, the professional factors that have affected the field and China-watching, and the future evolution of the field.
