Talk by Richard Kirkby - YANGGUIZI TO LAOWAI: Foreign presences in the People’s Republic of China

The Meridian Society joint meeting with the SOAS China Institute.

With brief reference to a former age, Richard Kirkby discusses his new book, Intruder in Mao’s Realm in the context of two recent works about the foreign presence in the People’s Republic of China.

Author of studies of China’s development, including the groundbreaking Urbanisation in China, Richard Kirkby’s memoir reveals how life was for the handful of foreigners in China during the dying years of the Cultural Revolution. The third generation of his family to live in China, he is kept up-to-date regarding the subject of his talk by his Sichuan-based son – who represents the fourth generation.
