In his third book on China, acclaimed reporter and travel writer
Michael Meyer provides an account of his 22
years of engagement with the country. Beginning with his arrival as
a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Sichuan in 1995, The Road to
Sleeping Dragon: Learning China from the Ground Up recounts
how he came to understand the country that looms so large on
today’s global stage. By sharing his deeply personal journey over
two decades, the book offers a unique perspective on China’s
culture and society. Mr. Meyer joined National Committee Vice
President Jan Berris for a conversation about his new book and
experiences living in and writing about China, on November 16, 2017
in New York.
Mr. Meyer is associate professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh and a fellow in the National Committee’s Public Intellectuals Program.
The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (www.ncuscr.org) is the leading nonprofit nonpartisan organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States among citizens of both countries.
