China in 200 pages – lecture by Torbjørn Færøvik

Price: 100 NOK

Torbjørn Færøvik, Norway’s foremost resource on China has released a number of award winning books on the country. In 2020 “China in 200 pages” was published as part of a popular series from Kagge Forlag where the reader is given an easy introduction to a number of themes. In this book we hear about China’s rich history from the early dynasties, through the Opium Wars, the years of decay and the Communist Revolution. Much of the book is devoted to the modern China with Mao, Deng Xiaoping and the current President Xi Jinping. The growth has been enormous and it will soon be the world’s largest economy.
We look forward to an engaging lecture by the author himself.
