Financial Times Best Book of 2014 It’s still known as the “rich man’s game” and considered taboo, and yet golf is booming in China — hundreds of new courses have opened in the past decade, despite it being illegal for anyone to build them. Award-winning journalist Dan Washburn follows the lives of three men intimately involved in China’s bizarre golf scene. We meet Zhou, a peasant turned golf pro who sees the game as his way into China’s new middle class; Wang, a lychee farmer whose life is transformed when a massive, top-secret resort springs up next door; and Martin, a Western executive maneuvering through a highly political business environment, ever watchful for Beijing’s “golf police.” Charting these three different paths to the new Chinese Dream, The Forbidden Game is a rich and arresting portrait of a country of contradictions.

Excerpt from Book Review Digest The practice, inaugurated last year, of issuing the annual cumulation of the book review digest in February. Instead of in December may now be said to be established. The valuable reviews in the monthly periodicals do not, however, all appear in time to be included even under this new arrangement. Where additional criticisms of 1915 books are deemed of' sufficient importance, they will be entered in the 1916 Digest. This year has seen a change in the editorial staff. Miss Clara E. Fanning, under whose editorship the Digest has been published since 1905, left in September to take a position in the Minneapolis Public Library, and Miss Margaret Jackson, formerly with The Century Company and the New York Public Library, assumed editorial charge at that date. The descriptive notes for September were written by Justina Leavitt Wilson, who has also contributed occasional notes to other numbers during the year. The Dewey classification numbers, a new feature of the 1915 Digest, have been assigned by Miss Corinne Bacon, editor of the forthcoming Standard Catalog. Miss Bacon is one of the advisory committee appointed by the with the cordial approval of Mr. Dewey, to' make recommendations for the expansion of the Dewey classification. The Digest and the Standard Catalog will, therefore, have the benefit of the recommendations of this advisory boar d.
