[WEBCAST] Superpower Showdown: How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold WarVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Member Event: Dialogue with co-authors Bob Davis and Lingling Wei
Asia Society Northern California will host a Member Event on Tuesday, June 23 with Bob Davis and Lingling Wei on their latest book, SUPERPOWER SHOWDOWN: How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold War (HarperCollins; release date: June 9, 2020).
In SUPERPOWER SHOWDOWN, Wall Street Journal reporters Bob Davis and Lingling Wei trace the route of the trade war from the early 1990s to the January 2020 signing of the phase one deal that signaled a temporary halt to economic hostilities.
Based in the two capitals—Davis in Washington and Wei in Beijing—these seasoned journalists have conducted hundreds of interviews with government officials and business leaders in both nations over the past nine years. Synthesizing a trove of confidential information, they probe how we have reached this tipping point in U.S.-China relations and what it means for the future.
The public talk with Bob Davis and Lingling Wei hosted by Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) on June 12 moderated by ASPI Vice President Wendy Cutler can be viewed here.
Date: Tuesday, June 23 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Pacific (Member Event)

SUPERPOWER SHOWDOWN is available for purchase via Copperfield's Books.
