How China Humiliated a US President: Talking Heads

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

VICE News and the New York Review of Books have partnered to create Talking Heads, a series about the big issues of the day as seen by the Review’s distinguished contributors.

In the first episode, Orville Schell discusses his essay “China Strikes Back.” He recently joined Jimmy Carter on a visit to China, where the former president received a less-than-warm welcome by the country’s leaders. Carter re-established diplomatic relations between the United States and China, but how close are the two countries 35 years later? Schell explains how the snubbing reflects a dramatic shift in US-China relations.

VICE News sat down with Schell to discuss the significance of the diplomatic slight against Carter, and how the US might benefit from a better understanding of the “Chinese Dream.”
