Next to the United States, China has become the world's most ruthless
imperialist.. it is promoting global environmental disaster... and,
perhaps most terrifying of all, this nuclear superpower and pirate
nation may be spiraling toward internal chaos.
Coming China Wars, The: Where They Will Be Fought and How They Can Be
By Peter Navarro.
Published Oct 19, 2006 by Financial Times Prentice Hall.
China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision
course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought
over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge
technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and
steel...even food, water, and air. In The Coming China Wars, best-
selling author Peter Navarro previews all these potential conflicts-
and reveals the urgent, radical decisions that must be made to avoid
You'll learn how China's thirst for oil is driving nuclear
proliferation in Iran, genocide in the Sudan, even Japan's
remilitarization. You'll discover China's shocking role in the drug
trade and how its reborn flesh trade may help trigger tomorrow's worst
AIDS crisis. Navarro also reveals how China has become the world's
most ruthless imperialist...how it is promoting global environmental
disaster... and, perhaps most terrifying of all, how this nuclear
superpower and pirate nation may be spiraling toward internal chaos.
The threat is real. We all must come to understand it and then act!

"Peter Navarro has captured the breadth of areas where China and the
United States have fundamental conflicts of business, economic and
strategic interests. He puts this into a global context demonstrating
where China's current development course can lead to conflict. His
recommendations for nations to coalesce to respond to the challenges
posed by China are practical. This book should be in the hands of
every businessperson, economist and policy-maker."

searching for the middle ground in the China debate. He issues a call
to arms for China and the rest of the world to act now to address the

property piracy, resource scarcity and more-or risk both serious
instability within China and military conflict between China and other
