Paper Tiger: Inside the Real China

by Xu Zhiyuan
£8.99   paperback  Head of Zeus (2017)

Paper Tiger: Inside the Real China by Xu Zhiyuan In Paper Tiger the Chinese journalist and intellectual Xu Zhiyuan paints a portrait of the world's second-largest economy via a thoughtful and wide-ranging series of mini essays on contemporary Chinese society.
 
Xu Zhiyuan describes the many stages upon which China's great transformation is taking place, from Beijing's Silicon district to a cruise down the Three Gorges; he profiles China's dissidents, including Liu Xiaobo, Ai Weiwei and Chen Guangcheng; and explores lesser-known stories of scandals that rocked China but which most people outside that country did not hear about – and which shed troubling light on China's dark heart.
 
Xu Zhiyuan understands his homeland in a way no foreign correspondent ever could. Paper Tiger is a unique insider's view of China that is measured and brave, ambitious in scope and deeply personal.
