A conversation about China with James Fallows

Award-winning journalist and former presidential speechwriter James Fallows has been The Atlantic Monthly's China correspondent for the last three or so years. He recently released a collection of his Atlantic China essays in book form: Postcards from Tomorrow Square: Reports from China.

I talked with James this morning about his book and his experiences of China, but we started by discussing environmental issues and Hillary Clinton's recent visit to Beijing. (Apologies for the background noise in the recording. It seems churlish to complain about Skype, since it allowed me to talk with Beijing for 15 minutes at no cost, but you do have to put up with some snap, crackle and pop.)
