Head to the Book Festival on Friday afternoon 24 August for a compelling double bill when Confucius Institute Director, Professor Natascha Gentz chairs `What future for China and Central Asia?`.
This double-bill book festival session features renowned political writer and historian Dilip Hiro`s whose latest book Inside Central Asia offers a lucid narrative that places the present-day politics and peoples of Central Asia and its neighbours into an international context. Meanwhile, Jonathan Fenby’s Tiger Head, Snake Tails looks at the future of China without resorting to the standard black and white story which insists that the country will either collapse or eventually rule the world.
Running on Friday 24 August from 14.00-15.00 tickets for this session are priced at £10 (£8). For more information and to book please visit the Book Festival Website.
