The Asian Institute presents

Seeking Truth and Hiding Facts: Information, Ideology, and Authoritarian Rule in China

Jeremy Wallace is an associate professor of Government at Cornell University. His research focuses on Chinese and authoritarian politics. His first book, Cities and Stability: Urbanization, Redistribution, and Regime Survival in China, examines the ways that China has managed its growing cities to maintain order. His current book project, Seeking Truth and Hiding Facts: Information, Ideology, and Authoritarian Rule in China, explores how and why authoritarian regimes rule as they do. The book argues that numbers defined Chinese politics, until they failed to count what mattered and what they counted did not measure up. He continues to work on the environmental, political, economic, and social issues of urbanization through Cornell's Institute for Social Sciences project, China's Cities: Divisions and Plans. His research website is http://www.jeremywallace.org.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact Rachel Ostep at 416-946-8996
