Google ChinaAfter Internet search giant Google redirected millions of Chinese users too its uncensored Web site in Hong Kong, the Chinese government countered by blocking access to the alternate site.  Political science and international relations Professor Joseph Fewsmith, a China expert, says move by the government that insists on censorship wasn’t a surprise.

“I’m surprised Google thought there was room to negotiate on that [censorship] point.”
