Have done a major revamp of my eBook 'The Rise of China in the Global Economy' which is targeted at A Level Geography teachers and students. China is always in the news but there is a lot of sensationalism and exaggeration in the reporting of events, policies and issues emerging from the country. Hopefully, this books provides a balanced assessment of China's economic, political, social and environmental changes, making it useful to anyone teaching or learning about this global superpower. I'm working on the paperback version which will be ready sometime in May.
Chapters: The Emergence of China as an Economic Power; Regional Development and Inequality in China; The Economic Challenges Facing China; China’s Role Abroad; China’s Environmental Legacy.
New or updated content includes: The growth and importance of Guangdong province (including the ‘Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area’); the ‘Great Western Development Strategy’; the transition to high-tech industries (including the ‘Made in China 2025’ plan); US-China trade war and technology tensions; development of the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’.

I am particularly interested in the geographical dimension to conflicts, as well as the geographical aspects to development and globalisation issues.
