Author Biography: Judy Bonavia was born in Perth, Western Australia. She spent some 30 years in Asia, living in Vietnam, Hong Kong and China where she traveled extensively. Fluent in written and spoken Mandarin, she also wrote the Odyssey Illustrated Guide to the Silk Road. During the 1990s she spent some years in Argentina studying Andean culture while continuing to work on a book about the minority peoples of China. She is now resident in Zimbabwe. Peter Neville-Hadley first visited China in 1986, returning repeatedly to investigate new areas while improving his Mandarin. Abandoning a London-based career in arts marketing, he turned to writing about China, first contributing to the second edition of Cadogan Guides' Central Asia, and then spending two years researching and writing China: The Silk Routes for the same publisher. He has since revisited China to fulfill commissions for the Sunday Times, and has also written on Beijing, the Yellow River, Hong Kong and other destinations in China for various publications.
