More to Come, But for Now …

While we usually take off the last two weeks of December, we’re delaying our break a little bit due to the momentous events of the past week: recent protests in Wukan, the death of Václav Havel, and now the announcement that Kim Jong Il has also passed away. We’ll do our best to cover these topics amid the chaos that accompanies the end of the academic term and arrival of the holidays. For now, follow us on Twitter (@chinabeat, as well as editorial team members @mauracunningham and @jwassers) to catch links to what others are writing about these breaking stories. Also, we’d like to point readers in the direction of Sinologistical Violoncellist, the blog of recent China Beat contributor and Sino-DPRK specialist Adam Cathcart, where he’s collecting a wide range of links to stories and analysis concerning Kim Jong Il’s death.
