America second : how America's elites are making China stronger / Isaac Stone Fish.

Stone Fish, Isaac, (author.).


"A timely, provocative expose of our political and business leadership's deep ties to China: a network of people who believe they are doing the right thing-at a great often hidden cost to our society"-- Provided by publisher.
In recent years relations between China and the United States shifted from enthusiastic economic partners, to wary frenemies, to open rivals. Stone Fish traces the evolution of the Chinese Communist Party's influence in America. He explains how many of our businesspeople and politicians have become too dependent on China to challenge it. Stone Fish exposes a deep network of Beijing's influence in America, built quietly over the years-- and shows how to fight that influence without being paranoid, xenophobic, or racist. -- adapted from jacket.
