Oh dear. The Chinese translation of Andrew Gelman’s book on hierarchical models and Bayesian analysis has been banned, due to “various politically sensitive materials in the text”. He must be so proud.
I’ll check the text tomorrow to see what might be so sensitive – perhaps they don’t like instrumental variables. But until then feel free to speculate, in an appropriate manner.
(actually, if you want to learn about Bayesian stuff, it’s an excellent text. Although if you get the Chinese edition, you might be hauled off to plant rice for 15 years)
