With this post, I would like to quote from Jeffrey Bingham Mead's introduction to Dr. Dave Wang's study of the founders and Chinese culture. Jeffrey is a solid scholar in US history and president of History Education Council of Hawaii State. Recent years he is host of Radio Show Marvels of China.
On Saturday, February 18 my featured guest is Dr. Dave Wang.
Born and raised in Northeastern China, he is an adjunct professor at St. John's University, New York, branch manager of the Laurelton Library/New York City Public Library System in Queens, New York and a noted scholar, lecturer and writer on the subject of the influences of Chinese civilization on the U.S. Founders and the founding of the United States of America in 1776. Much of his research is freely available to all on his blog site, The U.S. Founders and China:
His research and commentary has been cited and featured in numerous professional publications, ranging from The Korean Journal of Medical History to the Virginia Review of Asian Studies. His findings have attracted much attention in the academic world, too. Dr. Wang has been invited to present papers at conference throughout the USA, Europe and China. His research has found its way to university-level history and culture courses.
Remember that event in American history called The Boston Tea Party? The tea that was dumped in Boston Harbor was from China's Fujian Province.
Dr. Wang has been a guest on our show before -and we full expect to have him back again.
We'll feature our usual explorations on Treasures of China, immerse ourselves in timeless Chinese wisdom on the Confucius Moment and more! I'll share some announcement about happenings and events, too.
