About this Book

Beyond the Book

Robert B. Oxnam is internationally recognized as an Asia specialist and dynamic speaker. He often guides prominent Americans (including Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and former President George H. W. Bush) seeking in-depth knowledge of China. For more than ten years he was president of the Asia Society, which has offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Houston, and Hong Kong. He has hosted MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour specials on Asia; is a director of the Clemente Global Growth Fund and the First Philippine Fund; a trustee of the Rockerfeller Brothers Fund and Armand G Erpf Fund; and President Emeritus of the Asia Society. He lives with his wife Vishakha Desai, who is the current President of the Asia Society, in New York City.
