Excerpt from "Xi Jinping: The Backlash" by Richard McGregor
This week’s free issue of the newsletter is an excerpt from Richard McGregor’s new book Xi Jinping: The Backlash.
Richard is a senior fellow at the Lowy Institute in Sydney and before that he was a journalist with the Financial Times. His 2010 book The Party: The Secret World of China's Communist Rulers is still required reading for understanding the Communist Party and his 2017 book Asia's Reckoning: China, Japan, and the Fate of U.S. Power in the Pacific Century is also excellent.
I hope you enjoy the excerpt, and the book in its entirety.
