Book Talk at Italian Chamber of Commerce in China

Dear All,
The SPWG with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China invites you to our next meeting on April 23th at 18:00 in Shanghai. Our guests Mr. Andrew David Field (Associate Dean at Hult International Business Schoolwill present Shanghai Metropolis - from history to the future and his new book Mu Shiying: China’s Lost Modernist

Every month, million people move from tha past to the future. Pouring into developing-world "instant cities" like Shanghai and Shenzhen, these urban newcomers confront a modern world cobbled together from fragments of a West they have never seen. Do these fantastical boomtowns, where blueprints spring to life overnight on virgin land, represent the dawning of a brave new world? Or is their vaunted newness a mirage? 


Join Shanghai historian Andrew David Field for a celebration of his new book, Mu Shiying: China’s Lost Modernist. He will discuss Mu’s life and times and why his writings are still relevant and applicable to China today. He will also read passages from Mu’s short stories, including “Shanghai Fox-trot” and “Craven A”.
