The China Scare
Why the New Cold War is Unnecessary
About the Book
The American and European elite assumed in the twenty-first century that a “containment” policy was required with regard to Russia, Iran, and China for all time to come. This book starts from the ground level and explains for those with no previous exposure to the topic how the different phases of European history are connected to the different phases of Chinese history and how, especially, Russian history explains why the Chinese communist state in the twenty-first century was not strong and expanding but weak and desperate, on the verge of a disintegration in which it would lose half of the territory it claimed. To this effect, The China Scare: Why the New Cold War is Unnecessary promises to be an enlightening read.
