We’ll bring you a conversation with one of America’s leading scholars of East Asia, Ezra Vogel, emeritus professor of social sciences at Harvard. His 1979 best-selling book "Japan as Number One," predicted the rise of Japan as an economic powerhouse. His most recent book looks at China’s development and role Deng Xiaoping played in that country’s modernization. The first book, he says, played a role in educating America about Japan. His hope is that the new book will do the same for China.
