Restless Empire: China and the World Since 1750

Friday, September 14, 2012 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM


From the Qing Dynasty to the People's Republic, Chinese attitudes have been determined by both receptiveness and resistance to outside influence. With China soon to be the world’s largest economy, will it attempt to recreate a Sino-centric international order in Eastern Asia, or will it pursue a more harmonious diplomatic route?

Odd Arne Westad is professor of international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), co-director of LSE IDEAS, and editor of the journal Cold War History. He is the author of the award-winning The Global Cold War: Third World Interventions and the Making of Our Times and co-editor of the three-volume Cambridge History of the Cold War.

Speaker: Odd Arne Westad
