2011 MacArthur award recipient Peter Hessler on China and the Peace Corps

September 20, 2011

Peter Hessler’s three books on China (River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze (2001), Oracle Bones: A Journey Between China’s Past and Present (2006), and Country Driving: A Journey Through China from Farm to Factory (2010) provide a superb, close-to-the-ground examination of the country.   Here, in response to political attempts to de-fund the Peace Corps’s China program, he makes a great case for the importance of the Peace Corps in creating better understanding between the United States and China.
