The latest book from Tim Clissold “Chinese Rules” intriguingly subtitled ‘Mao’s Dog, Deng’s Cat, and Five Timeless Lessons from the Front Lines in China’ is an attempt to explain how China works.
Join the Confucius Institute for Scotland and the China Britain Business Council at this late afternoon talk in which the author, known by the title of his first book Mr China, will discuss the book, much of the content of which is drawn from his experience of seeking carbon capture investment opportunities in China when the carbon credit market was booming in the noughties.
From the back cover: “Combining exuberant storytelling, sly humour, and counterintuitive insights, Chinese Rules traces Clissold’s latest adventures, providing an object lesson in the contradictions between reality and conventional belief that continue to make China a fascinating, perplexing, and irresistible destination for Westerners”.
The talk will take place at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, High School Yards, Infirmary Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LZ from 15.30 – 17.00 on Tuesday 29th Sept 2015.
This talk, which is also supported by SDI, should interest anyone engaged with China through their business or research interests. Registration should be made through the following China Britian Business Council link.
