Lecture Synopsis: For China, it is a time of transition and transformation. From the country’s thriving and evolving economy to the relationship between the Chinese government and its people to the perception of the nation around the globe, Age of Ambition tracks China as it continues its upward trajectory as global superpower and what that means for everyone. Using his years of experience as the New Yorker's Beijing correspondent, Evan Osnos shares his 360-degree perspective of the most talked about country in the world.
New Yorker correspondent and National Book Award-winning author of Age of Ambition, Evan Osnos specializes in all things related to China. Based in Beijing from 2005 to 2013, he reported on the country's rise to power before sending his last dispatch from China to become The New Yorker’s Washington correspondent, covering politics and foreign affairs.
Mr. Osnos will sign books following his public address.
