Join National Committee Senior Director for Education Programs Margot Landman as she interviews Jessica Chen Weiss, assistant professor of political science at Yale, about her book, Powerful Patriots: Nationalist Protest in China's Foreign Relations. Dr. Weiss discusses Chinese government management of nationalist, anti-foreign protests and their diplomatic consequences from 1985 to 2012. She argues that official response ranges from repression to tolerance to facilitation of such protests- in ways that might surprise the listener.
