From the Ruins of Empire

Today on Sinica, Kaiser Kuo and Jeremy Goldkorn host a discussion with Pankaj Mishra on his book From the Ruins of Empire, a history of Asia’s intellectual response to Western imperialism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Also joining us for this wide-ranging discussion is Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Chinese historian, frequently published columnist, and co-editor most recently of Chinese Characters, a collection of essays on Chinese individuals by many well-known China watchers.
