About the Book
As seen in The Times, Sunday Times, Spectator, and on Tonight with Andrew Marr (LBC)
Join journalist Ian Williams as he examines China like never before. He begins with the extraordinary rise of the Chinese surveillance state, how information is controlled and how it affects the population, before moving his gaze outward to examine China’s aggressive foreign policy in relation to Taiwan and the wider world.
Thought-provoking and alarming, these books are crucial to understanding China as a nation and global competitor. Ian Williams brings his years of expertise as a foreign correspondent to bear, having reported on China across the last 25 years, providing unmatched insight into a country that many do not fully understand.
