CDT’s Top Posts of 2014

CDT’s Top Posts of 2014

As we get ready to welcome 2015, we reflect back on the year past by revisiting our most popular posts of 2014. Five of the top 10 posts were Directives from the Ministry of Truth, while the others reflect both some of the hottest news stories of the year as well as popular content from years past, including a 2009 New York Times story about the Tank Man of Tiananmen Square that has been a top ten favorite on CDT for four years running. In 2014, we also published two new eBooks and launched our free iOS app.

Thank you all for your continued support of CDT and we look forward to seeing what China has in store for us in 2015. Happy New Year!
