Publisher's Summary

While the United States stumbles, an award-winning foreign correspondent chronicles China’s dramatic moves to become the world’s dominant power.

As the second-largest economy, China is now extending its influence across the globe. Joanna Chiu has spent a decade tracking China’s propulsive rise, from the complicity of democratic nations, to a new colonialism coming from its multibillion-dollar “New Silk Road” initiative, to its growing sway on foreign countries and multilateral institutions.

Chiu transports listeners to protests in Hong Kong, underground churches in Beijing, and exile Uighur communities in Turkey, exposing Beijing’s use of high-tech police surveillance and aggressive human-rights violations against those who challenge its power. With increasingly close ties between authoritarian states, the new world order documented in China Unbound lays out the disturbing implications for prosperity and freedom everywhere.

More anti-Trump hackery

An interesting read up until the Trump bashing end. Nothing on his trade war success just "insurrection" nonsense. Biased and sad.

A Mixed Bag

The first eight chapters including those on Australia, Canada, Italy were very good and assembles China’s foreign policy and global actions in one book. Chapter 9 on the Trump approach to China was heavily criticized for changing course from the US foreign policy establishment. It was factually inaccurate and the observations were naive and sophomoric. After the first 8 chapters describe China as a malevolent force and a bad actor, the last chapter basically recommended the same type of failed engagement and dialogue that the US has done for the last 50 years. The CCP loves this approach and it does nothing to change the CCP’s behavior.

Essential For Those Who Aren't Political "Experts"

Very solid overview of current US & CCP relations and inner working of Beijing. Also covers the internment of Chinese Muslims and its origins, a story few of us seem to know details about. Highly recommend.
