Fearful Australian publisher Allen & Unwin drops book about China
Jonathan Pearlman,The Telegraph 19 hours ago


A leading publisher in Australia, Allen & Unwin, has dropped a book about the influence of China’s Communist Party in Australia’s domestic affairs, citing fears of retaliation by Beijing.
In a decision likened to the recent decision by Cambridge University Press to restrict access to sensitive China-related articles,  the release of the forthcoming book Silent Invasion: How China is Turning Australia into a Puppet State was shelved by the publisher over concerns about potential legal action by China.
Clive Hamilton, the author and a prominent Australian academic, said the decision by Allen & Unwin demonstrated the extent of the “shadow cast by Beijing”.
It is believed to be the first time that a publisher has suspended publication of a book in a Western market because of fears of potential pressure from Beijing.
“We as Australians living in a free society should not allow ourselves to be bullied into silence by an autocratic foreign power," Professor Hamilton told ABC News.
Robert Gorman, the head of Allen & Unwin, said in an email to Professor  Hamilton that he was concerned the publisher was "an obvious target" for "Beijing's agents of influence".
