Editorial Reviews


Navarro and Autry outline a clear and achievable path for America to tame the Dragon's onslaught. This highly entertaining book serves as not only a riotous call to arms, but a roadmap for Americans to re-claim the 21st century as their own. 
- Chriss Street, The Huffington Post

From the Back Cover

"At a time when there is a perception that China is the next world power, this book puts the spotlight on a different aspect of China, a country that does not seem ready to be a responsible member of the comity of nations. The international community's failure to take this Chinese reality into consideration will not only be detrimental to the rest of the world, but more so to the Chinese, Tibetan and other people who are confronted with the consequences on a daily basis."
- Bhuchung K. Tsering, Vice President, International Campaign for Tibet
"I've been long concerned about China's evolving military challenge to America and our allies, but Death by China reveals China's broader strategy of integrated advances on multiple fronts. The authors document how Beijing is using economic weapons of mercantilism and currency manipulation synergistically with espionage, cyber-warfare, space weapons, resource monopolization, and technology theft to gain dominance. In the process, the fundamental economic and geopolitical strengths that underpin America's military superiority are being systematically eroded while China becomes increasingly assertive in regional disputes. Every Western political and military leader should read this book. Now!"
- Jon Gallinetti, Major General, USMC, retired.
"I myself have escaped the clutches of the Chinese Communist Party and now enjoy a life of freedom in America. It is important for everyone in the nation I love to understand that the aggression of the Chinese government toward human rights does not stop at China's border. Chinese Communist Party leaders believe they are at war with democracy and freedom and any governments that support these values. Death by China is the perfect book to explain how Beijing's strategists e fighting and projecting that war around the world."
- Li Fengzhi, Former Agent of China's Ministry of State Security
"An important eye-opener for all Americans, Death By China is a must read before your next trip to Wal-Mart - or perhaps the unemployment line."
- Stuart O. Witt, General Manager Mojave Air and Space Port, Test Pilot, USN TOPGUN Graduate
"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

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.

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 ([...

I try to buy American whenever possible, but it's almost impossible because American corporations manufacture almost everything in China. I blame American corporations first, China second. We put ourselves in this situation.

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.

"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.

Death by China, is a fascinating and somewhat terrifyingly look into how China has become the 800 LBS economic and military gorilla on the worldwide stage. America needs to understand what the long term ramifications are to our economy and national defense initiatives if China continues to go unchecked and unchallenged by the United States government. Fortunately, Death by China answers some of these hard questions and more on how to deal with China today before they turn the Good Ole USA into a third world country..
