Moving back to London in November 2006, he was The Economist's most experienced foreign correspondent. In a 24-year career that included positions in London as industry editor and Asia editor, his foreign postings ranged from Singapore and Hong Kong to Brussels, Washington DC, Paris and finally Los Angeles.

John Andrews, a former Hearst journalism fellow at the Annenberg School of Communication, University of Southern California, has written two books on Asia, co-authored a book on Europe and contributed chapters to other books, including the Encyclopaedia Britannica. In 2010 he published The Economist Book of Isms.

His latest book The World in Conflict: understanding the world's troublespots - a fourth edition appeared in late 2022 - is a comprehensive and penetrating analysis of present-day war and terrorism published by Profile Books under The Economist imprint. Andrews is the co-editor of Megachange: The World in 2050, which examines the key developments that will determine our future. His special reports in The Economist — extended essays which, unlike the magazine's other articles, carry a byline — covered subjects as diverse as civil aerospace, the European Union, the Philippines, the business of fashion and the world of sport.
