9780679776628: The Coming Conflict with China

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

Review:

Richard Bernstein and Ross H. Munro have pooled their extensive experience observing China to produce a shocking account of what they believe will be the "the major global rivalry in the first decades of the twenty-first century, the rivalry that will force other countries to take sides." The authors describe an inevitable conflict between an aggressive and expansionist China that sees itself as the rightful arbiter of power in Asia and a naive and unprepared United States that has already entered three wars in the last half century to prevent any single country's domination of Asia. In previously unpublished reports of Chinese news sources, Bernstein and Munro thoroughly document how the Chinese press portrays the United States as the "Enemy" in no uncertain terms.

Like Alastair Iain Johnston's superb study of Chinese military culture, Cultural Realism, Bernstein and Munro do not stoop to unfair characterization of the Chinese culture or the Chinese people. The grounds for their thesis--that the United States and China are on a collision course over strategic national goals--are well documented in their book. Their argument is particularly strong in its consideration of how China can use its economic influence to curb other nations such as Japan and South Korea. Certain to be the most controversial book published on the subject of Sino-American relations for some time, The Coming Conflict with China makes for a thrilling, troubling read.

From Booklist:

Two reporters formerly stationed in Beijing deliver a probing essay on China's foreign-policy ambitions. That the official Chinese attitude toward the U.S. has grown bitterly antagonistic was probably not apparent to Americans until the Taiwan crisis of March 1996, but the developing anti-American posture was readily observable in public and leaked communications from the leadership. The authors avail themselves of this literature, stressing the shocks that consolidated the power of nationalistic hard-liners: the Tiananmen protests, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and America's awesome military display against Iraq. Bernstein and Munro then take up and castigate the "New China Lobby" in the U.S.: domestic business interests who favor emollient trade policies toward China. But placating China's stated grievances is futile, argue the authors; they advocate a balance-of-power stance, featuring, essentially, a closer alliance with Japan. Their plea, calmly informative, shows that grand strategy can be clearly explained--and needs to be understood if the U.S. is not to stumble into a war. A controversial but effective critique. Gilbert Taylor

Descrizione libro Random House USA Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In eye-opening detail, Richard Bernstein and Ross H. Munro, both of whom have been correspondents in China and bureau chiefs in Asia, examine China s continuing portrayal of America as the enemy; the shifts in Beijing s perception of American might; the enormous boon to China that the takeover of Hong Kong represents; China s increase in military strength; its challenging positions on Taiwan and the South China Sea; its sale of weapons to U.S. adversaries; its concerted efforts to hijack technology; its rigorous attempts - often through American corporations profiting in China - to influence U.S. policy. We discover how our military strategists are revising their scenarios for future conflicts, and how China is conducting its espionage. We are brought face-to-face with the startling implications of the trade imbalance between the United States and China (our deficit is $40 billion and growing). We learn of the struggles within the Chinese leadership and how assertive Chinese nationalism augurs a turbulent period ahead. This book is an informed and illuminating examination of a high-stakes clash of competing ideologies and economic interests. Codice libro della libreria BTE9780679776628
