The Scientist and the Spy 科學家與間諜

In a work of investigative journalism that reads like a page-turning spy thriller, Pulitzer finalist Mara Hvistendahl tells a riveting true story of industrial espionage and FBI profiling and overreach. She is joined by journalist turned author of spy fiction, Adam Brookes to discuss how a simple trespassing inquiry unfolded into a complex tale of trade secrets, counter-intelligence and corporate influence, and how she uncovered and reported this compelling account. In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.

This event is supported by the U.S. Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macao.
