The Shortest History of China: Linda Jaivin at State Library Victoria (VIC)
Linda Jaivin’s latest book, The Shortest History of China distills 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 People’s Republic of China is likely to lead the world.
This panel will discuss, and launch, Linda’s book in our first hybrid event.
