China has rapidly become Australia’s most important trading partner. It is also the rising power in our region. In The Kingdom and the Quarry David Uren takes us inside the high-stakes world of the two countries’ relationship. From resource grabs to cybersurveillance, this is an authoritative and news-breaking book that investigates us inside key political and business events of recent times and tells us what really happened.

Uren paints vivid portraits of new billionaires like Twiggy Forrest and Clive Palmer seizing their chance, of BHP and Rio Tinto playing off Chinese interests and the Australian government, of Kevin Rudd feuding with China’s leaders, and of a new world of spies, security, investment and opportunity. Above all he gives an unparalleled sense of fear and greed in the corridors of power.
