“Does China want to transform the global order to advance its own interests and to reflect its own image? That may be the most important question in geopolitics today, yet the answers it elicits tend to reveal more about modern biases than they do about what a future Chinese superpower would look like.”

Rana Mitter is Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the University of Oxford. He has been elected to several prestigious positions including president of the Cambridge Union, Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University and Fellow of the British Academy. In 2019, he was appointed an OBE for his services to education. Mitter is also a regular writer for publications such as The Telegraph, the Financial Times and the Guardian, and frequently presents BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking. Mitter's research focuses on the emergence of nationalism in modern China and he has authored several books on the topic.
