The Shortest History of China: Linda Jaivin with Readings (VIC)
Join us for an exciting evening with Linda Jaivin and Sophie Cunningham as they discuss Linda Jaivin’s book, The Shortest History of China.
The Shortest History of China is a nimble history of rogues, revolutions and rebellions and can be read in a day, but will transform your view for a lifetime. From kung-fu to tofu, tea to trade routes, sages to silk, China has influenced cuisine, commerce, military strategy, aesthetics and philosophy across the world for thousands of years. Linda distils a vast history into a short, readable account that tells you what you need to know, from China’s philosophical origins to its political system, to the COVID-19 pandemic and where the PRC is likely to lead the world.
