Please join the Manchester China Institute for a book launch of Peter Martin’s China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy. In the book, Martin charts China's transformation from an isolated and impoverished Communist state to a global superpower from the perspective of those on the front lines – China’s diplomats.
Drawing for the first time on the memoirs of more than a hundred retired diplomats as well as from Martin's first-hand reporting as a journalist in Beijing, this groundbreaking book blends history with current events to tease out enduring lessons and paint in vivid detail the kind of power China is set to become.
