Chinese Vistas: Jonathan Spence lectures about China.

Recorded at The Asia Society in New York.

Spence explores the two centuries in which the United States gradually moved from its position as a dominant beacon of freedom and democracy for China, to becoming a more demanding global rival during and since World War II. Is America right to be wary of the emerging superpower or can the two economic and military giants co-exist happily?
