The latest volume of the series is Dr. Henry Huiyao Wang’s work The Ebb and Flow of Globalization: Chinese Perspectives on China’s Development and Role in the World. This book focuses on globalization and China’s evolving role in the world, offering unique perspectives on a tumultuous period that began with Donald Trump’s election and ended with the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. This period saw the global landscape reshaped by China’s continued rise, intensifying great power competition, and a public health crisis that has changed how we live. The essays center on three interconnected themes – China’s remarkable development under its policy of Reform and Opening-up, China’s deepening integration into the global economy and rise in an increasingly multipolar world, as well as the quest to reinvigorate global governance and multilateralism to address the pressing global challenges of the 21st century. The book was released in August, 2022.
