Last quote by Andrew Nathan

If the Press acceded to a Chinese request to block access to selected articles, as I gather is the case, it violated the trust that authors placed in it and has compromised its integrity as an academic publisher. I imagine [CUP] might argue that it was serving a higher purpose, by compromising in order to maintain the access by Chinese scholars to most of the material it has published. This is similar to the argument by authors who allow Chinese translations of their work to be censored so that the work can reach the Chinese audience. [But] that's an argument I have never agreed

Andrew Nathan has most recently been quoted in an article called Cambridge University Press accused of 'selling its soul' over Chinese censorship. Andrew Nathan said, “What can it accomplish? I'm sorry to say that information control often works. But if you have so much money, staff, and time, that you can burrow down to the level of censoring academic publications in a foreign language that could only be used by your own academic community, then I think your censorship organs are over funded and you would do well to cut their budgets. As the saying goes, this is lifting up a stone only to drop it on one's own foot.”. Andrew Nathan has been quoted a grand total of 4 times in 2 articles.
