The Irby B. Brown Lecture

China: Where Has It Been, Where Is It Going, and What Does It Mean for America?

Dr. David M. Lampton

U.S.-China ties have become militarily, diplomatically, and economically the most central bilateral relationship in today's world. Heading these two powers are leaders with strong personalities, strong-man leadership styles, and both represent nations with varied national interests. Despite the natural frictions, they must cooperate if global stability is to be maintained. Dr. Lampton will assess how these two leaders have managed the complex relationship in Donald Trump's first year as president and consider what future developments are likely.

David M. Lampton is Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, where he also heads SAIS China. He is Chairman of the The Asia Foundation, former president of the National Committee on United States-China Relations. He received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. His newest book, Following the Leader: Ruling China, from Deng Xiaoping to Xi Jinping, was published by UC Press in January 2014.
