CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Since 2003, Roland Soong has been publishing China’s foremost English-language blog on the blessings and misfortunes of contemporary Chinese society, called EastSouthWestNorth. From Hong Kong, and virtually on a daily basis, he deciphers stories or outstanding events in the news, tirelessly surfing China’s Web to pick out material. He translates information and passes it on, always with his own highly pertinent and often satirical analysis. While foreign journalists and observers help themselves to his work, Soong’s aims never falter: to make sure everyone can form their own opinion and to show the ever-increasing sophistication of China’s Internet users, despite the constraints that weigh heavily upon them.
