The China Wave: Rise of a Civilizational State
Zhang has written extensively in English and Chinese on People's Republic of China's economic and political reform, China's development model and comparative politics. Zhang worked as an English interpreter for some Chinese leaders, including Deng Xiaoping, in the mid-1980s. He expanded on the concept of a civilization state with his book The China Wave: Rise of a Civilizational State.
Zhang Weiwei first predicted Arab Winter in his June 2011 debate with Francis Fukuyama, who believed Arab Spring might be spread to China.[1] "My understanding of the Middle East leads me to conclude that the West should not be too happy. It will bring enormous problems to American interest. It is called 'Arab Spring' for now, and I guess it will soon turn to be the winter for the Middle East."[2]
