      BOOK TALK: A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China

      It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for a book talk event on  3 October 2019 at 4:30pm to celebrate the launch of our new publication  A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China.  A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China is a recollection of the historic visit of fourteen American students (and one Canadian) to China in 1971. The visit was one of the first approved for American scholars after the Chinese Communist Party came to power in 1949 and occurred prior to President Nixon’s famous trip (as well as that of a second group of scholars) in 1972. One of these students, Paul Pickowicz, kept a journal and photographically documented the trip. This book is a personal account of the events leading up to their visa approvals as well as those that occurred during the journey itself. The five senses are used to connect the reader to his experience and are placed in the context of a theatrical production.  In this talk, our author Paul G. Pickowicz (Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History and Chinese Studies of the University of San Diego) will be in conversation with Mike Chinoy (Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the U.S.-China Institute at the University of Southern California) to share his personal experience related to the topic of the book.  RSVP here at eventbrite https://bit.ly/2kgt4HS or email to upress@cityu.edu.hk.   We are looking forward to seeing you there!
