The Coming Conflict with China (Paperback)

Not in the store—Ships in 1-5 Days


From two former Beijing bureau chiefs with long experience in Asian affairs comes a clear-eyed and uncompromising look at the potentially disastrous collision course now taking shape in U.S.-China relations. Aggressively anti-American, China has nuclear weapons deliberately targeted at the United States. Recent confrontations between Chinese and American military forces indicate that China may try to take Taiwan by force. While our trade deficit rises to unprecedented heights, the powerful new china lobby shapes U.S. policy with the support of American businesses eager for a share of its booming markets. The Coming Conflict with China is required reading for those who wish to understand the tense global rivalry that is already shaping the course of the 21st century.

"Plunges harpoons into the tenderest interstices of the Chinese-American relationship."--New York Times

"Disturbing and provocative...There is plenty to worry about."--Wall Street Journal
