Penguin Shorts, Penguin’s digital series of short works, has today announced a partnership with The Economist to publish a series of reports called Penguin Economist Specials.

Written by journalists and originally published in The Economist, five titles, costing £1.99 each, will launch tomorrow - China: Rising Power, Anxious State by James Miles; The Future of Jobs: The Great Mismatch by Matthew Bishop; Personal Technology: Beyond the PC by Martin Giles; Video Games: All the World’s a Game by Tim Cross; and Women and Work: Closing the Gap by Barbara Beck.

Venetia Butterfield, publishing director for Viking Penguin, said: “We have always been determined that Penguin Shorts offer readers the highest quality writing at an affordably low price, and our partnership with The Economist does precisely that. These brilliantly written reports are the perfect primers for some of the most pressing contemporary issues, and come with the trusted editorial stamps of both Penguin and The Economist.”

Tom Standage, The Economist’s digital editor, added: “We see this series as an excellent way to continue our commitment to delivering Economist content to readers wherever and however they prefer to consume it.”
