In Conversation with Timothy Garton Ash

This week on Sinica, Kaiser Kuo and Jeremy Goldkorn are pleased to host a conversation with Timothy Garton Ash, Professor of History at Oxford University and recent participant in the Capital M Literary Festival in Beijing. As one the world's leading historians of the end of the Cold War, Ash joins us for a conversation about history and revolutions, both in China and abroad. In this week’s episode, we talk to him about China’s model of authoritarian capitalism, whether moral values are universal, recent developments with Russia and Crimea, as well as his own experiences uncovering a personal Stasi file after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
