The Rebirth of An EmpireStreaming Video - 2012
Can China replace the U.S. as the world's preeminent power? And if it did, what type of power would it wield? In Pakistan and Afghanistan, China's investment in infrastructure along with a flow of low-cost goods has beat out U.S. foreign policy in winning the hearts of the people. Yet China's relations with India become strained over the issue of Tibet, and in Hong Kong brutal crackdowns on Falun Gong make a mockery of the slogan "one country, two systems." This program travels throughout Asia to study the relationships China has with its closest neighbors, and to examine the U.S.-China balance of power. Chalmers Johnson (The Blowback Trilogy) discusses American hegemony, Rebiya Kadeer addresses concerns of the Uyghur minority, and exiled dissident Wei Jingshen provides commentary throughout.
