Drawing on the structural-constructivist framework of journalistic field and habitus, Reporting China on the Rise examines the internal and external dynamics which are shaping the work of foreign correspondents in China during Xi Jinping's tenure.

This study presents findings from extensive surveys and interviews with current and former correspondents based in China. It aims to explore how they have responded, and continue to respond, to pressures from within the journalistic field (such as a transforming media industry), as well as from constant shifts in global geopolitics, and China's increasingly restrictive journalistic environment. These factors are shown to work together to relationally define the news production practice of these correspondents and, ultimately, shape the final news product.

Journalism in modern China has become a widely discussed, yet gravely under-researched topic, both for policy-makers and academics. Reporting China on the Rise seeks to open up discussions around the role of the foreign press in generating meaningful media coverage of this growing superpower. It will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers of Journalism and Media Studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'As China struggles to enhance its "soft power" commensurate with the perceived world-power status, what is the role of foreign correspondents and what are the prisms through which they narrate their China tales in an ensemble? This volume provides a riveting account of the lifeworld of foreign correspondents in China and contributes importantly to the comparative dimension of media and journalists.' Chin-Chuan Lee, Yu Shan Chair Professor of Communication, National Chengchi University, Taiwan
