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?
