“Peter Navarro has captured the breadth of areas where China and the United States have fundamental conflicts of business, economic and strategic interests. He puts this into a global context demonstrating where China's current development course can lead to conflict. His recommendations for nations to coalesce to respond to the challenges posed by China are practical. This book should be in the hands of businessmen, economists and policy-makers.” - Dr. Larry M. Wortzel, Chairman, US-China Economic and Security Review Commission "The Coming China Wars is a gripping, fact-filled account of the dark side of China's rise that will be of interest to anyone interested in this complex and fascinating country. Navarro makes no pretense toward searching for the middle ground in the China debate. He issues a call to arms for China and the rest of the world to act now to address the country's mounting problems--pollution, public health, intellectual property piracy, resource scarcity and more--or risk both serious instability within China and military conflict between China and other major powers." - Elizabeth C. Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director of Asia Studies,Council on Foreign Relations "What Al Gore does for climate change, Peter Navarro does for China. This book will hit you right between the eyes. A gargantuan wake-up call." -Stuart L. Hart, S.C. Johnson Chair of Sustainable Global Enterprise, Cornell University Author of "Capitalism at the Crossroads""An excellent distillation of the issues facing China, and thus the world. Peter Navarro has written a book richer in information and insight about China than any I have read. It is headed for the bestseller list." - Lester R. Brown, President, Earth Policy Institute "The Coming China Wars has a wealth of fascinating information about the impact of China on the world and the perils it creates. Because of China’s great importance, this is a book we should all read."- D. Quinn Mills, Alfred J. Weatherhead Jr. Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School China is now the "factory floor" for global production. It sells to the world at the competition-crushing "China Price" and we as consumers benefit greatly. Unfortunately for the world, this story doesn't end with a cornucopia of cheap Chinese goods on our store shelves. Rather, it begins precisely at this point. It is a story about how the rapid and often chaotic industrialization of the most populous country on the planet has put China on a collision course with the rest of the world. The emergence of China as an economic superpower is currently moving on a path that will affect literally every nation and every person in the world, and potentially cause great turmoil and conflict. The primary purpose of this book is to raise the level of economic and political awareness to a level which will allow all of us, including the Chinese, to begin to think much more deeply about how to stop the Coming China Wars and to participate in the set of very hard choices that must be made. The coming China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, liveable wages, and leading edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel and eventually to our most basic of all needs: bread, water, and air. Unless all of the nations of this world, immediately address these impending conflicts, the results could be catastrophic.
