The China Fallacy is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand American policy toward China. Its thoughtful recommendations on improving U.S.-China relations should be weighed seriously by all concerned with the impact of China's rise.
—Samuel R. Berger (United States National Security Advisor, under President Bill Clinton from 1997 to 2001)

Jon Huntsman

Understanding the complexity, risk and opportunity of China's rise will drive American opinions and policy making well into the 21st century. This book makes an important contribution to that end.
