Jonathan D. Spenceis a British-born historian and public intellectual specializing in Chinese history. He has been Sterling Professor of History at Yale University since 1993.

A prolific author, reviewer, and essayist, he has written a dozen books on China. His research takes him to many Chinese universities.
Widely recognized as a leading scholar of Chinese history, Spence was president of the American Historical Association for the 2004-2005 term.
