At the ongoing New Delhi book festival, the Foreign Language Press is promoting President Xi's Up and Out of Poverty. It is a selection of speeches by him while he served in Fujian province from 1988 to 1990.

Foreign Language Press, also the publisher of the well-received book The Governance of China, says it will soon release a new book on Xi from the point of the power of his language. Separately, the Central Compilation & Translation Press will release a translation of Xi's selected remarks and essays on his anti-graft campaign.

With regard to former leaders, Foreign Language Press will put out a detailed version on Deng Xiaoping's 1979 visit to the United States.

As the 40th anniversary of Mao Zedong's death approaches, many new titles on him can be expected. Notable among them is expected to be Peking University professor Han Yuhai's book on Mao and his life stories. The book is specially designed to appeal to both younger and foreign readers. The book is said to be highly readable, and follows one on Karl Marx by the same author.


Huo says readers outside China who seek more books explaining Chinese politics, foreign relations, economics and reform can expect more, works specially by authoritative voices.

China Intercontinental Press has invited professionals and experts from Latin America to spell out their views on China and its rise, as they launch a series in both English and Spanish.

Another interesting work is Penguin's Eight Juxtapositions by Jeffrey Wasserstrom, a China scholar and commentator. In his work, Wasserstrom "challenges conventional commentary on China through eight experimental analogies, finding fresh and surprising ways to look at the Asian superpower".

And for authoritative and updated reports on Chinese policies, Foreign Language Press will produce a series covering topics like the "Four Comprehensives", the rule of law, the Belt and Road Initiative and the Chinese Dream.
