Soft Power

Interview

Friday, November 16, 2007

China’s government has a strategy of using “soft power” to improve the country’s image –- promoting the arts, building language schools abroad, and, of course, remaking Beijing itself for the 2008 Olympics. But it’s a strategy with some pitfalls. Kurt talks with Orville Schell, a journalist and scholar who directs the Asia Society Center on China-U.S. Relations.

I miss being able to see Orville at the UC Journalism School. I look forward to visiting
the Asia Society in the near future. I would even consider working for the Center for US-China relations.

Please send my very best regards to Orville Schell.
