"Peter Navarro has captured the breadth of areas where China and the United States have fundamental conflicts of business, economic and strategic interests. He puts this into a global context demonstrating where China's current development course can lead to conflict. His recommendations for nations to coalesce to respond to the challenges posed by China are practical. This book should be in the hands of every businessperson, economist and policy-maker."-Dr. Larry M. Wortzel, Chairman, US-China Economic and Security Review Commission "The Coming China Wars is a gripping, fact-filled account of the dark side of China's rise that will be of interest to anyone interested in this complex and fascinating country. Navarro makes no pretense toward searching for the middle ground in the China debate. He issues a call to arms for China and the rest of the world to act now to address the country's mounting problems-pollution, public health, intellectual property piracy, resource scarcity and more-or risk both serious instability within China and military conflict between China and other major powers." -Elizabeth C. Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director of Asia Studies, Council on Foreign Relations "What Al Gore does for climate change, Peter Navarro does for China. This book will hit you right between the eyes. A gargantuan wake-up call." -Stuart L. Hart, S.C. Johnson Chair of Sustainable Global Enterprise, Cornell University, Author of "Capitalism at the Crossroads" "The Coming China Wars has a wealth of fascinating information about the impact of China on the world and the perils it creates. Because of China's great importance, this is a book we should all read." -D. Quinn Mills, Alfred J. Weatherhead Jr. Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School "This is a well researched and illuminating book and is a necessary counter to a large body of opinion that posits an inevitable and even peaceful rise of China and chooses to ignore most of the author's message."-Richard Fisher, Vice President, International Assessment and Strategy Center
