Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Gertz, a reporter for , takes a vehement stand on American foreign policy with China, arguing that the US has made a grave error in assisting China in its rise to global power. He accuses the Clinton administration of deliberately leaking information about Chinese intelligence to avert the FBI's campaign finance investigation, as well as covering up intelligence on China that would have exposed their espionage abilities and arms sales. Strongly worded, accusatory, and verging on the conspiratorial, this book should be read with some reservations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    This book makes you want to wash your hands. An informative and nightmarish report on why we may lose the next world war. Hard to put down, as it is hard to keep reading.

    America refuses to see the threat from China

    'The China Threat' is another in a series of books attempting to get Americans to look past their expectations for financial gain from trade with China -- to confront the reality of China's empty promises on missile proliferation, to understand their hostile intentions towards America, and to realize Beijing's utter lack of interest in democratic reform and human rights. In the 1970s through the fall of the Berlin Wall, China and America enjoyed a marriage of convenience as they confronted the Soviet threat. Sadly, American foreign policy vis a vis China did not adjust to the end of the Cold War -- and Beijing naturally took advantage of this. Gertz carefully chronicles how China has managed to buy or steal our most critical national security secrets. He documents how China views missile and nuclear proliferation as a way to threaten the United States (the enemy of my enemy is my friend). He sets out some sobering scenarios for Chinese aggression in Asia -- and even in our own backyard. No one should doubt the seriousness of the China threat after reading this book. Clearly China will present as great a threat to our safety and freedom as did Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

    This is a book George W. Bush MUST Read!

    This is without a doubt among the most important works of this decade. It is must reading for political decision makers, and ultimately the American people who love freedom. If republican government is important... so is meeting this growing threat of Red China.

    A REAL EYE OPENER!

    This book is a well researched and documented book, that has provided a insight on our policies toward China. It has official 'CIA' documents,that have been leaked out by fustrated CIA agents. Just truly shocking!

    The real danger is imminent!

    Once again Bill Gertz warns about the very real threat of China's philosophy and plan to take over the world by first targeting the U.S. This book is well researched as was his last book 'Betrayal.' In his new book he explains in detail how the China threat works and amidst talks of peace and cooperation with China and the full inclusion of China into the WTO, the real danger which is imminent, is easily overlooked. Another brand new book that explains the whole scenario extremely well in form of a novel, although the book is based on a (de)classified CIA report, and it's a breathtaking thriller and strongly recommended, is Alec Donzi's 'The Consultant.'
