Who Can Free China? A Sion College Seminar Supper with Roger Garside

Thursday 20th January, 6:00 for 6:30pm (note time)

The Oriental Club, Stratford House, 11 Stratford Place, London WC1 1ES

Roger Garside’s career has included diplomacy, development banking and capital markets development.  He has worked on the frontline of political and economic change in China, the former Soviet Empire and Emerging Markets.  As a British diplomat, he served in Beijing during the Cultural Revolution, and again from 1976-9, when Mao died, and Deng launched the Reform Era. He then wrote Coming Alive: China After Mao.

His new book China Coup: The Great Leap to Freedom predicts the end of totalitarian rule in China and the launch of a transition to democracy.  In his talk to Sion College, he will explain why this will happen, and how the story may unfold. Attendees can order China Coup at £11.40 a copy (RRP £18.99).
