The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy will host a discussion with Wall Street Journal correspondent Chun Han Wong, whose important new book profiles the life and political vision of Xi Jinping. “Party of One: The Rise of Xi Jinping and China’s Superpower Future” offers a bold new account of Xi’s rise to the pinnacle of Chinese politics and his hard-line, authoritarian strategies for ruling a nation that is reshaping the entire world order.

Chun Han Wong has covered China for the Wall Street Journal since 2014. He was part of a team of reporters named as Pulitzer Prize finalists for their coverage of China’s autocratic turn under Xi Jinping.

Arne Westad, Elihu Professor of History and Global Affairs, and Director of International Security Studies and the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, will moderate.

A pizza dinner will be served.
