Adjunct Professor Ronald Keith
This presentation will focus on Professor Ronald Keith's 2018 Routledge, London book publication, Deng Xiaoping and China's Foreign Policy which is the sequel to the earlier Macmillan/St. Martin's publication, The Diplomacy of Zhou Enlai. Professor Keith will elaborate on why Deng can be regarded as having one of the most sophisticated and constructive foreign policies of the twentieth century and how the content of his foreign policy continues to inform the by and large peaceful basis of China's present-day foreign policy.
