The Potomac Library group meets, usually with a guest speaker, 8 times a year on the first Thursday of the month: February, March, April, May, June, September, October, and November. We meet from 12:30-2:00. The program is free and open to the public. 

  • A copy of the 2018 Briefing Book will be available in late January at the Information Desk.  The book cannot be checked out, but it only takes about an hour to read the relevant article. 

China and America: the new geopolitical equation By David M. Lampton 

In the last 15 years, China has implemented a wide-ranging strategy of economic outreach and expansion of all its national capacities, including military and diplomatic capacities. Where the United States has taken a step back from multilateral trade agreements and discarded the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), China has made inroads through efforts like the Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). What are Beijing’s geopolitical objectives? What leadership and political conditions in each society underlie growing Sino-American tensions?  What policies might Washington adopt to address this circumstance? 

Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Potomac Chapter.
