Martin Jacques, author of “When China Rules the World“, thinks that we should not think of China in Western terms, and expect it to be behave like the Western countries. We have to understand its civilisation, culture and history, before we can understand it.
Martin Jacques is Senior Fellow at the Department of Politics and International Studies, Cambridge University, a Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University, Beijing, and author of ‘When China Rules the World: the End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order’.
Martin has previously been a Visiting Professor at Renmin University, the International Centre for Chinese Studies, Aichi University, Nagoya, and Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto. He was a Senior Visiting Research Fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. He is a Bosch Public Policy Fellow at the Transatlantic Academy, Washington DC. He was formerly the editor of the renowned London-based monthly Marxism Today until its closure in 1991 and was co-founder of the think-tank Demos. He has been a columnist for many newspapers, made many television programmes and is a former deputy editor of The Independent newspaper. He took his doctorate while at King’s College, Cambridge.
