Godfree Roberts

After graduating from the University of Queensland, Godfree Roberts received his doctorate from UMass, Amherst. His newsletter, 'Here Comes China', reflects his fifty years' study of Chinese civilization. His book, 'Why China Leads the World: Talent at the Top, Data in the Middle, Democracy at the Bottom', re-examines everything we think we know about China–its government, its economy, its human rights and its soft and hard power–and demonstrates that our ‘knowledge’ is mostly nonsense, dreamed up during the 1950s and amplified over generations.
