During a thirty-year career as a print and broadcast journalist Mark Newham's coverage of international affairs and development issues has appeared in almost every quality British newspaper, in international news magazines and on the BBC.

With foreign postings including Africa and China, Newham has combined journalism with media consultancy work for the United Nations, the World Bank and the European Union.

Plunderland is the third in a three-part series charting China’s growing influence on the world.

The first – Limp Pigs – was published in 2011 and ranked Number One in Amazon’s censorship category for several weeks. The BBC called it ‘Unique... Inspiring....’

This was followed in 2014 by Cometh the Yuan, described by the Guardian newspaper as 'Beautifully rendered... a cut above the rest'.
