EAST ASIA SEMINAR SERIES
The struggle between state agents and grassroots activists is central to politics everywhere. Is this dynamic any different in China? How have state repression and grassroots activism evolved and varied across localities in China, the world’s most powerful authoritarian state?
Dan Mattingly (Yale) on his new book, “The Art of Political Control in China” and Juan Wang (McGill) on environmental protestors in China. Sida Liu (Toronto) provides commentary on the “cat and mouse” game between repressive agents and protestors.
