We are thrilled to share the news that The Fire of the Dragon: China’s New Cold War by Ian Williams has been shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2023.

Wide-ranging and meticulously researched by former foreign correspondent for Channel 4, The Fire of the Dragon is essential reading. It proclaims the clear and sobering message that we must open our eyes to the reality of China’s rise and its ruthless bid for global dominance.
