From L to R: Roderick MacFarquhar, Ian Johnson, Orville Schell.

Last night the Asia Society, in conjunction with the New York Review of Books, hosted a speaker series with guest speakers Ian Johnson – Beijing-based writer and foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal – and Roderick MacFarquhar, a Professor of History and former Director of the John King Fairbank Center for East Asian Research at Harvard University.

The panel topic was, "How Stable is China: Can Its Economic Miracle Continue Under Its Current Political System?"
