“Reading” China

If you want to get a true feel through the printed word for what’s going on China  – please go beyond the newspapers, which specialize in sweeping generalizations or sensationalism that can ultimately dehumanize the place.  Check out the really insightful writings of some of our best journalists and authors – Evan Osnos, Peter Hessler, John Pomfret, James Fallows.  They’ve drunk the water and touched the soil, and their articles and books are brilliant, compassionate, and dig well below the surface.
