Rigorous and timely scholarship on political, economic, social, and foreign policy challenges in China and U.S.-China relations for the academic community, foreign policy experts, and the interested public.

China Program faculty and fellows regularly author books, book chapters, and articles that appear in peer-reviewed academic journals and acclaimed scholarly and trade presses. We also share the outcomes of our research projects and the proceedings of our conferences, workshops, and policy outreach activities in monographs and other volumes that are disseminated through the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center’s publishing program jointly with Stanford University Press and the Brookings Institution. Browse our publications below.
