  • The Beijing Bureau: 25 Australian Correspondents Reporting China's Rise. Edited by Trevor Watson and Melissa Roberts. Hardie Grant, $32.99.

Trevor Watson and Melissa Roberts emphasise one obvious, but obviously critical, point in introducing this anthology. They insist that it has "never been more important" to have Australian correspondents based in China, reporting on China's rise "through a prism of Australian priorities, standards and values".
