The Generalissimo: Chiang Kai-Shek and the Struggle for Modern China

Jay Taylor, Writer

Host: David Inge

At the time of his death, Chiang Kai-shek was widely viewed as a brutal dictator, a failed military leader, and the man who lost the mainland to Mao Zedong.  Jay Taylor says that was once his assessment too, but after doing research on the life of the Chinese leader, Taylor says he says he came to see Chiang as a complex figure--not the complete villain the West sees nor the saint long revered in Taiwan. We’ll rebroadcast an interview with Jay Taylor author of "The Generalissimo."

Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China

Ezra F. Vogel, Ph.D., Henry Ford II Research Professor of the Social Sciences, Emeritus, Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, Harvard University

Host: David Inge

This interview was recorded on January 26, 2012

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.
