About Dancing on Bones
- Deeply researched and draws on first-hand reporting on the ground in North Korea, Russia, and China
- Offers the first in-depth study of this critical fault line of global politics as it runs through these three nuclear powers from 1945 to the current day
- Documents efforts to control the past under Putin, Xi, and Kim, including new memory laws and the closure of the Memorial organization in Russia, the Chinese Communist Party’s campaign against historical nihilism and 2021 history resolution, and how the North Korean regime draws on a distorted version of history to justify its pursuit of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles
- Available for pre-orders now and releasing in May 2022. More info here.
Katie is a senior editor at the New Statesman magazine where she writes about China and global affairs. She is also a non-resident global fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC, and has written for publications including Foreign Policy, The National Interest, The Diplomat, and The Asan Forum.
Previously based in Russia and China as a foreign correspondent for Sky News, she has reported from more than twenty countries to date, covering conflicts, natural disasters, and some of the world’s most repressive regimes. From Beijing, she reported extensively on North Korea, travelling to Pyongyang, the DMZ, and the China-North Korea border, and covering multiple missile and nuclear tests. As well as covering Chinese domestic politics, she travelled out into the disputed waters of the South China Sea and to the front line of the battle for the southern Philippines city of Marawi, where she reported under sniper fire from ISIS-linked militants.
During her time in Russia, she led the channel’s coverage of the crisis in Ukraine, covering the Maidan revolution in Kyiv, the annexation of Crimea, and the subsequent conflict in eastern Ukraine.
