Our Spring 2022 issue, out April 4, features a special section on China. “The contributors to this section do not have a single position to promote or stance to defend,” Jeffrey Wasserstrom writes in his introduction. “Taken together, however, they offer up a nuanced collective view of an increasingly powerful People’s Republic of China that is both shaping and being shaped by a world that ricochets from crisis to crisis.”
