Hillary Clinton’s Book Banned in China

hillaryclintonHillary Clinton’s new memoir Hard Choices is being distributed in many languages in bookstores around the globe. But it will not be translated into Chinese, nor will it be distributed in China.

In the book, Clinton speaks critically of the Chinese government and its censorship practices. In turn, the publisher has not been able to find a Chinese publisher or distribution. Simon & Schuster president Jonathan Karp told Buzzfeed that this ban is “outrageous and unfortunate.”

BuzzFeed has more: “Karp said Simon & Schuster made a concerted effort to find a Chinese publisher, but there was no interest. Executives didn’t even reach the point of negotiating with a Chinese publishing house. ‘It’s been deafening silence,’ said Karp.”
