Cuckfield Book Festival: Ian Williams


The Fire of the Dragon by Ian Williams

Drawing on Ben Rogers’ 30 years of experience as a journalist and human rights campaigner in and around China, The China Nexus examines the international community’s response to the challenges posed by Beijing and offers ideas for ways forward for a China policy.

Ben is a regular contributor to national and international media. He often briefs and advises parliamentarians.

In 2017, on the orders of Beijing, he was denied entry to Hong Kong.
The Fire of the Dragon examines the new cold war’s many fronts – from Taiwan and the South China Sea to the Indian frontier, the Arctic and cyberspace. Beijing has strengthened its alliance with Vladimir Putin, supporting Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.

Ian Williams has reported from China for the last 25 years. The Fire of the Dragon was shortlisted this summer for the Orwell Prize for Political Writing.

Ben and Ian will be in discussion with Andrew Lownie, board member of Cuckfield Book Festival and a literary agent.
