Review

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

“Like a modern-day Paul Revere, this book offers the most urgent of warnings about how China is systematically destroying the American economy under the false banner of ‘free’ trade–and in the process, severely weakening our national defenses.”
Ian Fletcher, Senior Economist, Coalition for a Prosperous America

 

“The authors rightly and squarely point the finger at all of the corporate turncoats and China apologists in America who are helping to make China’s rise anything but peaceful.”

Alan Tonelson, Research Fellow, U.S. Business and Industrial Council, AmericanEconomicAlert.org

 

“A high-powered rifle shot that hits the Beijing bull’s-eye dead-on.”

Dylan Ratigan, host of MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show

 

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

 

“This clarion call carefully researches and intricately details the clear and present dangers that an anything but ‘peacefully rising’ China poses to the world.”

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, 46th District (Rep, CA)

 

“This liberty bell of a book should shake American leaders out of their slumber so that they finally–finally–realize that China’s economic policies are bankrupting the United States of America.”

Richard McCormack, Editor and Publisher, Manufacturing & Technology News

 

“I’ve been long concerned about China’s evolving military challenge to America and our allies.... Every Western political and military leader should read this book. Now!”

Jon Gallinetti, Major General, USMC, retired

 

“Be forewarned: Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop.”

Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang

 

“A chilling compilation of China’s gathering storm.”

Brian Binnie, Commander USN, retired; test pilot; commercial astronaut and winner of the Ansari X Prize

 

China is now the greatest threat to America.

 

Soon to be the world’s largest economy, China is attacking on every front, with every available weapon—from protectionism and currency manipulation to cyber attacks and espionage. Around the globe, China is also doing whatever it takes to capture crucial resources—even if it means promoting nuclear proliferation by the world’s most dangerous regimes. Inside the United States, Americans are being injured or killed by the Dragon’s dangerous exports: poisoned food, spiked drugs, toxic toys. Meanwhile, huge U.S. corporations have allied with China’s state-owned enterprises to destroy American manufacturing—and, ultimately and ironically, destroy themselves.

 

It’s an incredible and incredibly shameful story, and Death by China tells it all. But understanding the reality of China’s assault on America is only the beginning. Leading economists Peter Navarro and Greg Autry offer a complete plan for surviving the global power shift China has already engineered—and halting the Dragon’s onslaught before it’s too late.

 

It’s not China “bashing” if it’s true

Challenging the China apologists and appeasers

 

The Dragon’s death to America’s manufacturing base
How China’s totalitarianism, mercantilism, and protectionism are winning

 

China ’s “dark visitors” steal the “rope” to hang us with

Beijing’s Red Hacker Brigades vow: “We will bury you, Chinese-style”

 

Death by Colonial Dragon—A rising hegemon’s revenge
Vacuuming up Africa’s resources, plundering Latin America, bullying Asia

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.

"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.

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 ([...

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.

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.

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..
