My Recommended China Reading – March 2018


Greetings from Peking University.

I send out these lists about once a month. It’s the best China consumer and digital China reading I have come across (I read most everything). Plus some of my recent writing.

So below are my recommended China articles and books for March 2018. I hope these are helpful and that your spring is going well.

Cheers, Jeff
