Bates Gill in conversation with Richard McGregor

What are China’s global ambitions under Xi Jinping?

China expert Bates Gill provides an engrossing and urgent study in Daring to Struggle – one of the first major books to take stock of China’s approach to the world under the strongman ruler Xi. A unique and insightful framework for analysing the complexities of China’s international engagement, it is ‘clearly conceptualised, well written, and based on granular research…filled with insights but troubling in its implications’ (David Shambaugh, George Washington University).

On Tuesday 15 November, join Gill in conversation on his new book with Richard McGregor, Senior Fellow for East Asia at the Lowy Institute.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

Daring to Struggle will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Gill following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
