n his first visit to China, during the tumult of the Cultural Revolution, Christopher Hum watched Chairman Mao receive the adoration of his Red Guards. He lived there in all for ten years, as a diplomat and as British Ambassador between 2002 and 2005, and had a ringside seat as China turned into the superpower it is today. What role does China aspire to play in the international community? Threat or opportunity? Will China rule the world?
This special lecture program by the distinguished diplomat and former British Ambassador to China, Sir Christopher Hum, is brought to Kansas City in partnership with The English-Speaking Union of Kansas City and the International Relations Council of Kansas City.
