Plenty of news out of still-rising China lately. Chinese leaders doing deals with Vladimir Putin as Putin defies the West. Chinese sea power pushing an oil rig into waters claimed by Vietnam. Chinese military on FBI wanted posters for hacking American companies’ intellectual property. China’s unprecedented, light speed rise to wealth and growing power has the whole world’s attention. New Yorker writer Evan Osnos is just back from eight years in China and out with a deep analysis of Chinese dreams and ambitions. This hour On Point: Deep China, with the New Yorker’s Evan Osnos.
