From the Publisher

China has become the powerhouse of the world economy, its incredible boom overseen by the elite members of the secretive and all-powerful communist party. But since the election of Xi Jinping as General Secretary, life at the top in China has changed. Under the guise of a corruption crackdown, which has seen his rivals imprisoned, Xi Jinping has been quietly building one of the most powerful leaderships modern China has ever seen. In CEO China, the noted China expert Kerry Brown reveals the hidden story of the rise of the man dubbed the ‘Chinese Godfather’. Brown investigates his relationship with his revolutionary father, who was expelled by Mao during the Cultural Revolution, his business dealings and allegiances in China’s regional power struggles and his role in the internal battle raging between the old men of the Deng era and the new super-rich ‘princelings’. Xi Jinping’s China is powerful, aggressive and single-minded and this book will become a must-read for the Western world.

Capturing the True Criminality of Chinese State Corruption

I’ve spent much of my life trying to understand China, traveling there extensively, reading widely and thoroughly on the subject, and generally badgering my Chinese friends with questions about what’s going on inside the world’s most populous country. So when I sat down to write my Ava Lee series, it seemed natural enough to have a Chinese-Canadian as my heroine. It also made sense to make her a forensic accountant—initially working as a debt collector in Asia—since it allowed me to tap into my many years of experience doing business there. Those experiences included exposure to bribery and o

After Xi Jinping's Visit With Donald Trump, Chinese State Media Criticized Syria Strikes

President Donald Trump proclaimed the success of his summit with China on Saturday, tweeting, "It was a great honor to have President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan of China as our guests in the United States. Tremendous goodwill and friendship was formed, but only time will tell on trade." But as soon as President Xi left the country, Chinese state-run media outlets began to aggressively denounce Trump's recent missile attack on a Syrian airfield near Homs, the New York Times reported. Xinhua, the Chinese state news agency, accused Trump of launching the attack both because of his domestic
