Each week The Current Digest of the Chinese Press presents a digestible collection of articles from key Chinese news sources on such topics as politics, international relations, security, economics, business, public health, environment, education, culture and more. Articles are selected from a variety of sources in China, all of which are explicitly targeted on a domestic – not foreign – audience.
The rise of China is one of the compelling stories of our time. Yet it can be difficult for a person with an abiding interest in China to get a broad-survey, comprehensive understanding of current events as reported by mass media in the People's Republic of China, especially if he or she lacks Chinese-language fluency.
Likewise, as the media in China are far from free, any China-borne attempt to represent a broad picture of China is bound to lack perspective and worse, probably has a specific agenda. The Current Digest of the Chinese Press removes such obstacles, offering readers, regardless of Chinese language ability, a much clearer (if more complex) view of the current Chinese reality.
