What we need to know about the world’s most powerful leader

Meet the most powerful leader in the world.

Chinese premier Xi Jinping graces our television screens and news headlines on a regular basis. But even after a decade in power, he remains shrouded in mystery.

From growing up with a father purged in Mao’s Cultural Revolution and his mission to eradicate poverty, to his persecution of Uyghur Muslims and paranoia about being likened to Winnie-the-Pooh, Xi Jinping is a man obscured by caricatures. In this short, essential primer, historian and writer Michael Dillon unveils the character of Xi Jinping – arguably the world’s most powerful man – to truly understand his grip on China, what he wants and how the West gets him wrong.

But this is not just the story of Xi; this is the story of today’s largest economic powerhouse, which dives into the crux of the issue – what does Xi’s leadership of China mean for the rest of the world, and what will he do next?
