Kurzbeschreibung


This is the eBook version of the printed book.

Bestselling author Peter Navarro (The Coming China Wars) and Greg Autry challenges the dominant paradigm of a "Chinese Miracle" - the one featuring a modernizing, progressive Chinese state heading toward political reform and driving global economic growth with its new found embrace of capitalism and freedom.
Tearing this delusion away, Death by China documents the myriad ways that a powerful, wealthy, and corrupt Chinese Communist Party emboldened by a growing nationalistic frenzy is becoming the biggest threat to global peace, prosperity, and health since Nazi Germany.
From currency manipulation and abusive trade policies, to slave labor and deadly consumer products, China's ruthless rulers threaten the livelihood of the citizens of every developed nation. These thugs have created a frightening amoral society ruled by a constant fear hidden to outsiders and bought off with the ill gotten profits of a myopic quest for economic advantage at any cost - social, environmental, or civil rights concerns be damned. Worse, as with everything else, China is scaling and exporting the model around this world, threatening their neighbors and exploiting developing nations across the globe with a new imperialism.
While America worries that Al Qaeda or Iran may get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction, China is using our Wal-Mart dollars to build them by the score; filling brand new nuclear submarines with missiles aimed at our heartland and building stealth planes designed to obliterate our friends in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
America's policy of appeasement and perpetual bending to Beijing's tacit threat to stop funding our unsustainable consumption based economy and deficit addicted government has left the Chinese people and the world in a frightening position while achieving absolutely nothing. With each new attempt at further "engagement" China simply rounds up more artists, writers, and political dissidents into its gulags and continues its policies of virtual genocide against the peoples of Tibet and the Uighars of East Turkestan. It tightens control over media and the Internet and expands its regional, territorial and resource claims. Laughing at our timidity, it becomes ever bolder in executing its plan to shutter every last manufacturing plant in the West.
Meanwhile, Western turncoat CEO's are content with pumping up one more quarterly report by driving every last high-value manufacturing jobs to Guangzhou or Chengdu. Congress is happy to be re-elected with contributions from those same corporations. Together they are happy to leave the rest of us with a future of low paying service and retail "careers" based on selling junk made in China to each other while accumulating a pile of Chinese debt and building a geopolitical time bomb of epic proportions.
For every American, European, Japanese or Korean reader who wonders where his job has gone and worries about the world his children will inherit, Death by China is a must read. The book features an inspiring Forward by Chinese Dissident, Baiqiao Tang and a brilliant Epilog by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.

Buchrückseite

“Like a modern-day Paul Revere, this book offers the most urgent of warnings about how China is systematically destroying the American economy under the false banner of ‘free’ trade–and in the process, severely weakening our national defenses.”
Ian Fletcher, Senior Economist, Coalition for a Prosperous America

 

“The authors rightly and squarely point the finger at all of the corporate turncoats and China apologists in America who are helping to make China’s rise anything but peaceful.”

Alan Tonelson, Research Fellow, U.S. Business and Industrial Council, AmericanEconomicAlert.org

 

“A high-powered rifle shot that hits the Beijing bull’s-eye dead-on.”

Dylan Ratigan, host of MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show

 

Death by China is further proof that we are sowing the seeds of our own demise.... This book is shocking and is a must-read for all.”

Paul Midler, author of Poorly Made in China

 

“This clarion call carefully researches and intricately details the clear and present dangers that an anything but ‘peacefully rising’ China poses to the world.”

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, 46th District (Rep, CA)

 

“This liberty bell of a book should shake American leaders out of their slumber so that they finally–finally–realize that China’s economic policies are bankrupting the United States of America.”

Richard McCormack, Editor and Publisher, Manufacturing & Technology News

 

“I’ve been long concerned about China’s evolving military challenge to America and our allies.... Every Western political and military leader should read this book. Now!”

Jon Gallinetti, Major General, USMC, retired

 

“Be forewarned: Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop.”

Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang

 

“A chilling compilation of China’s gathering storm.”

Brian Binnie, Commander USN, retired; test pilot; commercial astronaut and winner of the Ansari X Prize

 

China is now the greatest threat to America.

 

Soon to be the world’s largest economy, China is attacking on every front, with every available weapon—from protectionism and currency manipulation to cyber attacks and espionage. Around the globe, China is also doing whatever it takes to capture crucial resources—even if it means promoting nuclear proliferation by the world’s most dangerous regimes. Inside the United States, Americans are being injured or killed by the Dragon’s dangerous exports: poisoned food, spiked drugs, toxic toys. Meanwhile, huge U.S. corporations have allied with China’s state-owned enterprises to destroy American manufacturing—and, ultimately and ironically, destroy themselves.

 

It’s an incredible and incredibly shameful story, and Death by China tells it all. But understanding the reality of China’s assault on America is only the beginning. Leading economists Peter Navarro and Greg Autry offer a complete plan for surviving the global power shift China has already engineered—and halting the Dragon’s onslaught before it’s too late.

 

It’s not China “bashing” if it’s true

Challenging the China apologists and appeasers

 

The Dragon’s death to America’s manufacturing base
How China’s totalitarianism, mercantilism, and protectionism are winning

 

China ’s “dark visitors” steal the “rope” to hang us with

4.0 von 5 Sternen Surprised 9. Mai 2011
Von LZ1111 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was skeptical of this book to begin with. Like a lot of supporters of free trade, I'd been focused on the benefits of our China relation and I wasn't moved at first when Navarro and Autry trotted out all the usual arguments about human rights abuses - although some of the details are simply horrifying and they do cite their sources. However, by the end of the read I was taken aback by the breadth and depth of what can only be called a "conspiracy." Rather than covering any one subject - trade abuses, militarization, environmental destruction - too deeply the author's make their point forcefully and quickly and then move on. This approach leaves the reader's mind clear enough to see that all of these seemingly disconnected things are LINKED. They are connected pieces in a strategic plan that delivers ever greater wealth and power to small group of men in Beijing and Shanghai at God knows what cost to China, America and the rest of humanity. Death by China delivers a relentless and well deserved beating to China's corrupt leaders.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Writing is Too Sensationalist and Manipulative 22. August 2011
Von Jen Rothmeyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First, while I am glad that I read this book and will be following up with the various citations it made to explore more onto the issue, I find fault often with the language. I realize that it is a "call to action," but I don't generally approve of sensationalist or manipulative language. As an example, on page 34 when discussing the corrosive drywall that had a huge negative impact on the homes being rebuilt in wake of the disastrous hurricanes and flooding, the authors state the following, "As a middle-finger salute to this whole shoddy process, the corrosive drywall was then mixed and shipped to the United States without proper oversight or testing." As a middle-finger salute? I find myself questioning if that was necessary or if it actually detracts from the point being made. It certainly turned me off.

Second, there are a lot of issues being raised in this book. At times it was a little confusing to follow what their point was. There are no footnote/endnote numbers in the actual text itself, so as you are reading you have no idea if the statement is made up or supported by something. There is a section on endnotes in the back of the book, but you have to look them up by page and by phrase, which seems to somewhat hinder the ability to look up and research the original source documents. It's all there, but, again, as you are reading you don't have the ability to see if a specific phrase is actually supported by something without constantly flipping back and forth to the back to check every single phrase.

Third, the book did not seem to be equally critical. I'm not saying that everyone should run around criticizing everyone, but I think using critical thinking across the board is an admirable quality when discussing issues. On the Facts And Details website ([...]) there is the following quote: "China's three great rivers--the Yangtze, Pearl and Yellow River--are so filthy that it is dangerous to swim or eat fish caught in them. Parts of the Pearl River in Guangzhou are so thick, dark and soupy it looks like one could walk across it."

On page 176 of Death by China: "America's three great rivers-the Colorado, Mississippi, and Ohio-are so filthy that it is dangerous to swim or eat fish caught in them. Parts of the Ohio River in Pittsburgh are so thick, dark, and soupy it looks like one could walk across it. -FactsandDetails.com

You don't have to be a card-carrying member of the Sierra Club to know this quotation is phony. But once you replace "America" with "China," substitute the "Yangtze, Pearl, and Yellow" rivers of the "Colorado, Mississippi, and Ohio," and swap "Guangzhou" for "Pittsburgh," the environmental picture painted by the website FactsandDetails.com is all too real." - Death by China"
If this is a phony inaccurate quote, why is it quoted as if it is legit? Sure, the authors state that it is phony in the paragraph following where they quoted it, but why was that necessary? Also, there are pollution problems in the United States and I don't believe this section is using critical thinking and analysis equally.

On page 178, the authors write that millions of citizens live at the mouth of the river in Shanghai, but no one dares to bathe or swim in the waters. Several times throughout this section there are references to American bodies of water, but the authors don't mention that it is illegal to swim in the Potomac in Washington D.C. 364 days per year? It is my understanding that this is largely because of the level of feces and other contaminants (although my cursory search doesn't find that as the official reason so please don't treat that as fact and I may very well be wrong - I'd love to know if I am).

Overall, I find that while I appreciate the book and it's compilation of topics and sources, I don't find it a very reliable source of fact. The language can also be confusing in some places and a little more factual explanation could have been provided on some of the topics. It does require a significant amount of time to read in order to digest all the information and check the sources (there is nothing wrong with this). It is an interesting opinion piece and I look forward to looking into the sources it quotes and continuing to research the topic. Despite my criticisms of the nature of the language and content, I hope the authors are appeased that I do intend to look more into the issue. Their point was made and their call to action will be followed on my part by more research. That, I think, is ultimately their end goal and therefore they can count this as a success.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received Death by China by Peter Navarro and Greg Autry free from Prentice Hall/Pearson through the FSB Media review program. I was not required to write a positive review and did not receive any other compensation. The opinions I have expressed are my own and no one else's. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

1.0 von 5 Sternen Sensationalism run amok 26. April 2012
Von Craig Wood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
"Death by China" is an outstanding topic for a book. The authors discuss the growth of China as a political, economic and military power, citing numerous first-hand and third-party sources to argue that China's growth is coming at a great cost to the rest of the world. The citations and data are all carefully footnoted. To put it mildly, there is ample evidence to back the authors' views.

But I share the same problem with this book that so many others have already mentioned. That is, the book is written in such a sensationalist style that I believe it actually does a disservice to the very important message that this "Global Call to Action" is trying to share. You literally can't read a single page without coming across childish language, underhanded digs or gratuitous exclamation points. It feels a bit like an immature eighth-grader, with promising talent, buried himself in this topic for a year and produced this mess. The data and arguments are compelling, you just wish that they could have been conveyed with greater maturity and levelheadedness.

To be fair, I learned a great deal from reading "Death by China" and it's certainly opened my eyes to that country's behavior within the global community. But at my ripe old age, I really had hoped that the authors could have summoned a bit more professionalism while sharing their very compelling arguments.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Planned Financial Invasion 7. Mai 2011
Von Lynda L. Buoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
We are losing America a dime at a time!! It's time to admit the free trade policies that are destroying America are not just a accidental Oops. This is a planned financial invasion to steal the wealth of this country.
While every Religious Radio Station professes the threat of the Muslim invasion of America. China continues its financial invasion using our Wal-Mart Stores and our governors and Chambers of Commerce invite China into invest in our heartland.
Death by China should be required reading for every American.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An important message 5. Mai 2011
Von Brian Bishop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Autry and Navarro peel back the curtain on China's corrupt policies, both domestically and internationally. Death by China awakens us to the brutal facts of how China's government maintains ultimate control over the economic and social lives of Chinese subjects. It is a wake up call for not only our government's policies in response to China's continued aggression, but also a reminder that we can act as individuals to avoid supporting China's anti-freedom policies.
