Categories: East Asia, China, Arts & Culture, Economics & Business, Ethnicity & Race, Law, Literature, Media & Journalism, Travel

Unsavory Elements [1] is an anthology of true stories about foreigners “on the loose” in China. Through their stories, the authors and journalists from the book also explore illegality and ethics in China. As China Law Blog [2] describes: 

Ranging from transactions and deeds that would raise the eyebrows of those enforcing America’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act [3] to stints in prison for drug dealing to flagrant violations of prostitution laws, what results is 300 pages of business and law school case studies written not in legalese but in literary prose, and what a read it is.
