China’s growing authoritarianism is a global story
Joanna Chiu says she wanted to write a compelling book that anyone in the world could use to critically evaluate China-related global issues. China Unbound: A New World Disorder is one of five finalists for this year's Shaughnessy Cohen Prize, one of the best political books of the year. An excerpt is published here.
Joanna Chiu, author of China Unbound and a senior journalist at The Toronto Star. 'There are many books that study China's political system but China Unbound fills a gap in providing an accessible yet research-dense work of global reportage that provides concise historical context, cross-country comparisons as well as revealing individual stories.'
