Foreword by Janet Yellen
Is China Becoming a Mafia State?
USCI presents The Age and Sydney Morning Herald's China correspondent, John Garnaut.
Recently his coverage has been recognised with a Walkley award for 'Scoop of the Year' for breaking the story that Rio Tinto's Stern Hu had been arrested; the Citigroup award for business journalism ; and a finalist for the Graham Perkins Australian journalist of the year.
Before arriving in Beijing with his family in 2007 he was Economics Correspondent for the Sydney Morning Herald, based at Parliament House in Canberra. In an earlier life he was a commercial lawyer in Melbourne. As a child he spent stints in Papua New Guinea and China.
China and the state of California have built deep and interdependent socioeconomic exchanges that reverberate across the globe, and these interactions make California a microcosm of the most important international relationship of the twenty-first century. In his book, journalist Matt Sheehan chronicles the real people who are making these connections.
