Michael Auslin, Resident Scholar and Director of Japan Studies at the American Enterprise Institute
Professor Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China and Fellow of St Cross College Oxford
Policy Exchange held this event on the eve of Inauguration Day for the United States’ new presidential administration. It featured Michael Auslin, one of America’s leading foreign policy experts. Michael’s new and highly praised book, entitled The End of the Asian Century: War, Stagnation, and the Risks to the World’s Most Dynamic Region, challenges conventional wisdom on Asia’s future trajectory. This event brought a refreshing, critical perspective on the future of East-West relations in the age of Trump.
Before joining the American Enterprise Institute, Auslin was an associate professor of history at Yale University. A regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and National Review. His previous books include “Pacific Cosmopolitans: A Cultural History of U.S.-Japan Relations” (Harvard University Press, 2011)
He was joined by one of the UK’s leading experts on Chinese history and politics, Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China and Fellow, St Cross College at Oxford University and Fellow of the British Academy. Professor Mitter is the author of four books on China, including his acclaimed China’s War with Japan, 1937-1945: The Struggle for Survival (Allen Lane, 2013).
