The TBC Alumni Book (2020), is a photo-based book representative of the past 22 years of TBC’s history, since its beginning. This alumni book deviates from a traditional alumni book by creatively projecting the TBC experience’s boldness and excitement. Intended as a coffee-table mainstay, this spread quietly incorporates Chinese cultural symbols throughout the themed designs while engaging each photo in the process. Each section displays a set of compiled photos representative of a specific TBC experience, with photos of TBC students, staff, guests, partners, educators, and friends. The themed sections include TBC from the Beginning, TBC Opening Ceremony, The Beijing Times, Student Travel, Service Learning, Silk Road Excursion, Yunnan Province Excursion, Internships, Chinese Roommate Appreciation, Student Photography, TBC Closing Ceremony, and Group Photos.

To Define Sea Change and Explore Strategy (2020), by author Yinhong Shi, is comprised of eighteen articles and essays. Written in Chinese, this collection demands a lingual dexterity from its readers to delve into the assessment of China in terms of its politics, economy, society, ideology, and culture, and foreign affairs. This collection discusses the strategies China should consider and undertake – in an ever-changing world – that would significantly impact its global role in the future. Furthermore, this collection’s insight focuses on the national priorities of China and how the country’s strategic thinking can contribute to its domestic and international presence and power.
