Listen To Jeanne-Marie Gescher Talk About The Chinese Idea Of The Individual
One of the two most important states in the world, and set to become the most important story of the twenty-first century, China still remains a mystery to everyone. How does China work? What are its desires? What does its rise mean for the international order? These are all questions that have been sought answers to.
Jeanne-Marie Gescher seeks to answer these questions in her new book, ‘Becoming China: The Story Behind the State’. Gescher is a barrister by training but has spent 28 years in China where she has advised both governments and corporations.
Swarajya’s Contributing Editor, Jaideep Prabhu sat down with Jeanne-Marie Gescher, to discuss mythology, history, identity, philosophy, the Chinese idea of the individual and much more.
