For those interested in learning more about Chinese president Xi Jinping, this article from Foreign Policy reviews Inside the Mind of Xi Jingping: "Xi Jinping is a Chinese renaissance man. Self-assured, self-possessed, and utterly unflappable, Xi is equally at home on the hearths of struggling farmers and in the greeting halls of foreign capitals. State media likes to juxtapose the years he spent in the caves of Shaanxi with the days he spent governing Shanghai’s glittering towers. Here is a man as men should be: a leader who can grasp both the plow and the bond market! ... But what of the person behind the persona? Unearthing that man is the goal of François Bougon’s book Inside the Mind of Xi Jinping, translated from the original French into English in 2018." foreignpolicy.com/2019/11/21/xi-jinping-china-communist-party-francois-bougon
