Dan Washburn and Karl Taro Greenfeld on The Forbidden Game: Golf and the Chinese Dream


Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 7 p.m.
The USC US-China Institute welcome Dan Washburn and Karl Taro Greenfeld for a discussion of Washburn's new book, The Forbidden Game: Golf and the Chinese Dream, which uses the politically taboo topic of golf to paint what critics are calling "an illuminating portrait of modern China." The Forbidden Game follows the lives of three men intimately involved in China's bizarre golf scene, where new golf courses are at once banned and booming. Washburn, who lived in China from 2002 to 2011, spent more than seven years researching and writing the book described as "strikingly original" by The Wall Street Journal and "gripping" by The Economist.
