It’s launch day!! Drawing on a decade of research, CHINA UNBOUND is now officially published! Thank you so much for everyone's support. Here's one last thread about #ChinaUnbound & options to order here: joannachiu.com/how-to-order Image
China Unbound weaves historical & political context with my reporting across four continents to present comparative case studies on major topics like Beijing’s far-reaching authoritarianism, the #MengWanzhou saga, and China's growing economic clout through the New Silk Road. Image
#ChinaUnbound has been selected as a best book of fall by the @globeandmail, @TorontoStar, @quillandquire, @VancouverSun and @cbcbooks!

Publishers Weekly said it is “doggedly reported and fiercely argued, offering essential insight." joannachiu.com/reviews

#NewBooks:

I hope @LZarnow's new biography of Jewish American feminist-socialist leader Bella Abzug becomes an opportunity for more people to re-visit her.

I will never understand why such a key figure is not better known to the leftists and feminists of my generation.
An excellent review in @nybooks : nybooks.com/articles/2020/…

#NewBooks:

Saʾed Atshan's groundbreaking "Queer Palestine and the Empire of Critique" is a fearless study of the ups and downs of Queer Palestinian solidarity movement and its double facing of occupation and homophobic repression.
Among other things, Atshan is unscathing in his critique of who he terms 'radical purists' and academics such as Jasbir Puar and Joseph Massad and their "debilitating effects [on] the Queer Palestine movement..."
He takes them to task for having barred the movement from "the possibility for academics and activists to formulate a new mode of scholarly engagement aimed at supporting queer social movements in Palestine and across the Middle East."

I've gotten questions about whether I'm still accepting emails, catalogs, galleys for consideration for my Ms lists and other reviews. YES, I am! This is more true now: I want to know about all your #feminist, #queer, POC, WOC, womxnist, trans, enby, neurodivergent, etc books!
If you don't know how to get me, send me a message and I will get you the info. More info about what I'm looking for: look at the intro of any Ms #Reads for the Rest of Us list msmagazine.com/tag/feminist-k… AND/OR my review policy page: karlajstrand.com/review-policy/

A week out from publication of The Brink, about NATO’s almost-accidental war with the USSR in 1983. Up at 3am to do East Coast radio interviews. @WICN905 is first! No shame here in asking you fine people to buy the book. It’s a bracing read and it’s relevant. #newbooks #nato
The reviews have been humbling. The book shows how Reagan figured out how to handle the Soviets without compromising his principles, how spies telling truths saved the day, how intelligence and diplomacy mattered and why we must pay urgent attention (even today) to nuke cmd/ctrl
There are similarities between Reagan and @realDonaldTrump - and significant differences, too. Reagan prepared, hard, and continuously and ceaselessly (if imperfectly executed) sought to understand what the USSR truly feared and needed from arms control agreements.
