The authors discussed their recent book, China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power, published by Times Books. The husband-and-wife team were formerly based in Beijing, China, and this book is a result of their experiences there. The book details Ms. WuDunn’s visit to the village of her immigrant grandfather and her shock at the extreme poverty of its citizens, some of whom are her distant cousins. The authors described the “brutal” birth control policies of present-day China, but also noted some progress in democratic practices, such as the rise of radio “talk shows.” close
