FOUNDER AND AUTHOR

Dori Jones Yang founded East West Insights in 2011. Eager to see more publication of  excellent books relating to Asia and China, she created this publishing imprint to highlight the need for greater cross-cultural awareness.

 

Born and raised in Ohio, Dori began her immersion in Asia in 1976, when, after graduating from Princeton, she spent two years teaching English and studying Mandarin Chinese in Singapore and traveling throughout Asia, from Tokyo to Teheran. Eager for more depth, she earned a master’s in international relations from Johns Hopkins, focusing on East Asia, economics, and U.S. foreign policy.

In 1982, Business Week magazine sent her to Hong Kong as a bureau manager, covering China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia. During her eight years there, she reported and wrote about China’s amazing transformation during the 1980s, the rise of tech manufacturing in Asia, and the crisis at Tiananmen Square.

 

Since returning to the United States in 1990, she has focused on writing books, including many about China, Chinese history, and Chinese-Americans. Her author website is currently undergoing reconstruction.
