Introducing Drum Tower, our new China newsletter

Our new subscriber-only newsletter, Drum Tower, offers insights and observations from inside China and the places where it seeks to extend its influence.

The rise of China has been one of the most important developments of the past half-century. Now it wants to reshape the global order. Xi Jinping is the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. But the years ahead hold many challenges for the Communist Party, which has grown more authoritarian at home and more assertive abroad. The public is increasingly frustrated by Mr Xi’s strict “zero-covid” policy. The economy has been buffeted by lockdowns and a slumping housing market. And tensions with America are rising. By signing up to this weekly newsletter, you will get all of our China coverage in one place, as well as reading recommendations from around the web.

As a subscriber you will have the opportunity to interact with our reporters and editors. If you already have thoughts about the newsletter that you would like to share, you can drop us a line here: [email protected].

We will also be launching a new China podcast called Drum Tower in the coming weeks. Before then, our China correspondent Sue-Lin Wong hunts for the real story of Xi Jinping in The Prince, our new eight-part podcast launching on September 28th. Listen to the trailer below.
