  • About the Edition

    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.
