9780143112921: The China Fantasy: Why Capitalism Will Not Bring Democracy to China

The New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Vulcans blasts America's policy regarding the world's most populous country

One of our most perceptive China experts, James Mann has penned a vital wake-up call to all who are ignorant of America's true relationship with the Asian giant. Our leaders may posit a China drawn to increasing liberalization through the power of the free market, but Mann asks us to consider a very real alternative: What if China's economy continues to expand but its government remains as dismissive of democracy and human rights as it is now? Calling for an end to the current policy of overlooking China's abuses for the sake of business opportunities, Mann presents a must-read book for anyone interested in global affairs.

About the Author:

James Mann is the senior writer in residence at the CSIS International Security Program and the author of two critically acclaimed books: About Face: A History of America’s Curious Relationship with China from Nixon to Clinton and Beijing Jeep. Previously, he was a long-time correspondent with the Los Angeles Times, and his writing has also appeared in The New Republic and The Atlantic Monthly.

From AudioFile:

Once a journalist living in China, the author changes his point of reference to describe China as the outside world sees it. For example, he explores how we ignore Chinas political repression and one-party system in our zeal to trade with her. Narrator Jeff Riggenbachs deep voice reads the material straight from the page. His no frills style and perfect diction never drop or mispronounce a word, allowing listeners to concentrate on the information. What little Chinese he must pronounce--the names of leaders and large cities--gives him no pause and is of minor importance. Readers will learn hardly anything about China itself but will hear many ideas about how a totalitarian state thrives in an increasingly globalized economy.
