John Pomfret - The Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom: America and China, 1776 to the Present

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Currently a Fulbright senior scholar working in Beijing, Pomfret draws on both deep research and the reporting skills he honed as a Washington Post correspondent for this magisterial portrait of the relationship between the United States and China. As he chronicles the two nations’ different perspectives on major events including the Boxer Rebellion, the rise of Mao, and the two World Wars, and contrasts the effect of American missionaries in China with that of the immigration of Chinese workers to the U.S., Pomfret shows how these distinct episodes add up to one compelling story.
