“Entwined Destinies: America and China and the History of the Present”

Professor Chang will speak about his book, Fateful Ties: A History of America’s Preoccupation with China (Harvard University Press: 2015) that studies the long history of America-China relations. He covers this history from Jamestown to today and gives historical context for the current American fixation with China. He argues that this fascination continues centuries of American interest in China, an interest that is peculiar to the United States. This study builds on his earlier work on Sino-American relations and Asian American history.
