This year’s anniversaries of the 1919 and 1989 student protests in China will highlight the Chinese authorities’ contradictory attitudes toward the two movements. At some point it will have to reckon with its own history

No one knows what China’s future holds despite many of faulty predictions of systemic collapse or stagnation. Neither is likely, although they face challenges that are far more serious than many observers seem to think
