Andrew Jacobs

Andrew Jacobs has been a Beijing-based correspondent for The New York Times since 2008. Before that, he covered a variety of newspaper beats for the Times, from the American South and New Jersey politics to the New York City Police Department and Manhattan courts. His first dalliance with China occurred in 1985, when he spent four months traveling across the country, and he later returned in 1988 as an English teacher in Wuhan. As if that wasn’t enough, he returned briefly in 1997 to cover the return of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty. He is also the director of a documentary, Four Seasons Lodge, about a community of fun-loving Holocaust survivors who summer together in the Catskill mountains of New York.
