Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action
Product Author Bios
Peter Navarro, business professor at University of California-Irvine, is author of The Coming China Wars and co-author (with R. Glenn Hubbard) of Seeds of Destruction: Why the Path to Economic Ruin Runs Through Washington, and How to Reclaim American Prosperity. His work has appeared in BusinessWeek, the L.A. Times, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Harvard Business Review. A gifted public speaker, Navarro has appeared on Bloomberg, CNN, CNBC, NPR, and all three major network news shows. He has also testified before Congress at the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission's hearing on the U.S.-China relationship.
The world's most populous nation and soon-to-be largest economy is rapidly turning into the planet's most efficient assassin. Unscrupulous Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding world markets with lethal products. China's perverse form of capitalism combines illegal mercantilist and protectionist weapons to pick off American industries, job by job. China's emboldened military is racing towards head-on confrontation with the U.S. Meanwhile, America's executives, politicians, and even academics remain silent about the looming threat. Now, best-selling author and noted economist Peter Navarro meticulously exposes every form of "Death by China," drawing on the latest trends and events to show a relationship spiraling out of control.
Death by China reveals how thousands of Chinese cyber dissidents are being imprisoned in "Google Gulags"; how Chinese hackers are escalating coordinated cyberattacks on U.S. defense and America's key businesses; how China's undervalued currency is damaging the U.S., Europe, and the global recovery; why American companies are discovering that the risks of operating in China are even worse than they imagined; how China is promoting nuclear proliferation in its pursuit of oil; and how the media distorts the China story--including a "Hall of Shame" of America's worst China apologists.
This book doesn't just catalogue China's abuses: It presents a call to action and a survival guide for a critical juncture in America's history--and the world's.
