Economist adds China as first new country-specific section since WWII

Campaign Asia-Pacifc is reporting that For the first time since 1942 when it created a section devoted to the US, The Economist has added a new country-specific section to its table of contents—this one devoted to China.

“The section, which joins existing sections on the US, the UK, The Americas, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and Europe, will cover all aspects of China’s rising political, social, and economic power in order to provide readers with a better understanding of the vast country, according to John Micklethwait, the publication’s editor,” the magazine reports.
