The Beijing Bureau


Never before has China dominated headlines across the world as it does today. Through coercive trade bans, its Belt and Road Initiative, Wolf Warrior diplomacy, military manoeuvres and its control of the diaspora, China is flexing its international muscle. At home in China, the Communist Party is tightening its grip and driving patriotic fervour. At the same time, Chinese people enjoy prosperity unrivalled in their history.

The Beijing Bureau brings together Australia’s most acclaimed journalists who share their hard-won knowledge of China and stories of life as a correspondent. It reveals insights into this powerful nation from the 1970s to present day: the lives of its people, its government and its culture, and what China’s rise means for Australia and the world.
