Biography

Niv Horesh is a China specialist with over 20 years of experience ranging across the private sector, public service and academe. Between 2000-2003, he lived and worked in Beijing, and has been visiting different parts of the Chinese-speaking world regularly since. In 2002, Niv received accreditation as Professional NAATI Translator from Chinese into English.

Over the course of his academic career, Niv has held teaching and research positions at Hebrew University, China Agricultural University, the University of New South Wales, and the University of Nottingham (UK). He gave keynote presentations of his research around the world including at Oxford University, NYU Stern School of Business and UCLA.  Niv was also a Visiting Professor at the Beijing Foreign Studies University and Durham University.

Niv's research incorporates four main strands in the following order: Chinese History, World Monetary History, PRC Political Economy, and PRC Foreign Policy with emphasis on the Middle East.

His most important study in the first and second strands is Chinese Money in Global Context: Historic Junctures Between 600 BCE and 2012 (Stanford University Press, 2014). The book is available in Chinese translation as of this year. Subsequently, Niv has been invited to write the general entry for "Money" in the forthcoming Companion to the History of Information (Princeton University Press, 2021). 

The most important study in the third strand is East Asian Challenge to Western NeoliberalismCritical Perspectives on the ‘China Model’ (Routledge, 2017), co-authored with geographer Kean Fan Lim. Within this strand too, Niv's study of influential CPC Politburo Standing Committe Member Wang Huning was the first of its kind to be published in English.

The fourth strand is best represented by How China's Rise is Changing the Middle East (Routledge, 2019), co-authored with Anoushiravan Ehteshami.
