Penguin Specials 80th Anniversary celebrated by Penguin China Specials…

Posted: December 2nd, 2017 | No Comments »

Penguin Specials have been around for 80 years this since the first in 1937 in the UK. Penguin have been publishing Specials since 2014 and I’ve enjoyed putting out three with them – Badlands: Decadent Playground of Old Peking (some follow up stories to my book Midnight in Peking); Betrayal in Paris: How the Treaty of Versailles Led to China’s Long Revolution (part of the Penguin Specials China in World War One series) and; Bloody Saturday: Shanghai’s Darkest Day (to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Shanghai).

This short video may give you some additional ideas from the Penguin China Specials range – available in paperback form in Asia and Australia and as e-books everywhere else…
