China's economic and military advances over the past thirty years have made it an important international actor whose voice carries great weight in any discussion of global issues. Other nations have reacted with a mixture of awe and apprehension: the rise of China is fraught with both danger and opportunity. At the same time, these rapid advances have created strains within Chinese society that may ultimately slow or halt its spectacular progress short of the superpower status that is the dream of many patriots. This talk will examine both the accomplishments thus far and the pitfalls ahead.
