Sept. 30 – China Expat, China Briefing’s sister site covering all things concerning the interaction between overseas expatriates and Chinese culture, celebrates 10 years of existence this year and has released a complimentary book – “China Expat – A Decade of Writing: 2001-2011” – with a selection of articles contributed to the title over the past decade. The book is launched today both as a anniversary gift to China expats home and abroad, and also to celebrate China’s National Day, which falls on October 1.
“China Expat – A Decade of Writing: 2001-2011” brings together a collection of the published work of four well known expats for the first time in one volume. With articles taken from the archives of the original China Expat magazine, and more recently the online blog from the past 10 years, this collection will provide memories of days gone by, provoke exclamations of “I didn’t know that!” and inspire today’s generation of expats to get out, about and explore. In an age when blogs are mainly blah, the China Expat articles within will provoke, provide food for thought, and raise a wry smile.
The book, “China Expat – A Decade of Writing: 2001-2011,” is produced in full color, and is broken down into five main sections:
- Expatriate life
- Modern life and culture
- Traditional life and culture
- Historical perspectives
- Exploring China
Included are 47 well-written individual articles as well as a China Expat national bar directory and a listing of other China travel and culture blogs all spread over 232 pages. It is believed to be the first book to have been published by an expatriate China blog.
The book is also being produced in print format and will be made available through selected outlets across China. Two launch events are also taking place, in Beijing and Shanghai to which readers are invited to attend (free admission).
“China Expat – A Decade of Writing: 2001-2011” is also immediately available in the form of a complimentary PDF download. Please visit the China Expat web site to gain access.
