The World Tonight

I spoke about Xinjiang and Theresa May’s visit to China on The World Tonight on Radio 4 last night. That segment starts at 12:52.

The ‘perfect police state’

Two very good pieces from Xinjiang this week – one, a look at the securitisation of Xinjiang by Tom Philips in The Guardian (in which I am quoted), the other a nice piece of reporting from Bortala in Xinjiang by Edward Wong from the New York Times.

Reviews for China’s Forgotten People

9781784531409

Some thoughtful reviews from Kerry Brown at Open Democracy, Tom Miller at The Spectator, and Jonathan Mirsky at Literary Review (click here for pdfs LR CFP 1 LR CFP 2). Thanks to these experienced China commentators for taking the time to write such considered pieces.

There’s also a good overview of some of the book’s issues by Joshua Bird at Asian Review of Books and by Paul French at China Rhyming.

Thanks also to Ian Johnson of the New York Times for his incisive Q and A on the book.
