Ten years after his elevation to General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, Hu Jintao remains almost as much of an enigma now as he was on first taking power. What do we know about the man beyond his reputation as a somewhat robotic consensus-seeker, and how will history look back at his time in power? To discuss this question and all the other news that is fit to podcast, Sinica host Jeremy Goldkorn is delighted to be joined for Sinica today with Economist correspondent Gady Epstein, and none other than Kerry Brown, director of the China Studies Centre at the University of Sydney and author of the recent book Hu Jintao: China's Silent Ruler.Trying to keep current on what's happening in China?
