Professor Wang Gungwu is a scholar on Chinese and South East Asian history. I am still reading and rereading the two books in my possession that are written by Professor Wang ( Ideas won’t keep – the struggles for China’s future and Bind us in time – Nation and civilisation in Asia ). He ideas and knowledge are truly profound and helped to shape my world view, and in the process open up a much larger and richer vista.
Following is a recent video of Professor Wang Gungwu lecture that is pertinent to the above mentioned books. The title is China’s Quest: A New Cultural Identity.
