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.


Book News
According to the authors, toxic toys and bogus drugs from China are the tip of the iceberg of China's ruthless tactics of global economic and military dominance. Such tactics include espionage, currency manipulation, and rapid arms build up, not to mention the country's abysmal record on human rights and the environment. Arguing that "it's not China bashing if it's true," authors Navarro (business, U. of California-Irvine) and Autry (U. of California-Irvine) use a conversational style and a caustic sense of humor to describe the threat posed by China's brand of Communist-style state capitalism, counterfeiting of US intellectual property, and use of slave labor in its manufacturing sectors. The authors take aim at apologists for Chinese polices on our own soil, including free trade conservatives as well as liberals, and give suggestions for surviving China's global strategies, such as country of origin labeling, tort reform, and sanctions on currency manipulation. The book is for general readers and those in business. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

Hard-hitting, clear arguments blasting the Chinese government on many fronts. A lot of good information, but it is one-sided condemnation; many of the topics, especially the economic ones, can be argued in a more balanced way. The military and space sections are gripping. And now this man is head of the National Trade Council... the Chinese will be aghast.
