I gave this book three stars mostly because reading about its future scenario was rather entertaining since the book is mostly out of date. Really it was written by a couple of paranoid, angry Americans who can't even read or speak a word of Chinese. Which left their few available English sources having to hold up their argument all on their own.
Intersting read. Even though this book is outdated, it does provide the reader clear cut patterns & trends within China regarding their commercial, military & foreign policy towards the West, especially the U.S., as well as, the U.S.'s pattern in foreign policy with China.

I disagree with the title, and I think the argument is weak.
