CDT’s Top Posts of 2015

Once again, the world did not suffer a shortage of news coming out of China in 2015. CDT has compiled our annual list of Top Ten Posts, or the posts that were most viewed in the past year. As usual, Directives from the Ministry of Truth had a strong showing, as did stories about prospects for China’s future, Internet censorship, and environmental concerns. For those who missed it, our most popular post—a translation of an essay by journalist He Xiaoxin about the Tianjin explosion—is a powerful and worthwhile read.

Thank you for reading CDT, and we wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year:
