Graham Hutchings was for many years China correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. He has lived and worked extensively in China and Hong Kong and has published several articles on modern Chinese history. Whilst in England, he lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire.Review:
'China will have a huge impact on all our lives in the 21st century. Whether you're a businessman, politician, student or general reader, you could not possibly have a better guide to China than Graham Hutchings. His book - the product of many years of scholarship and first-hand experience - is sharply written, perceptive and judicious.' Chris Patten
