These searing revelations will have you calling for impeachment.”
Tony Blankley, bestselling author of The West’s Last Chance
China’s military build-up is a reality the United States must deal with and not just today, but well into the future. Conventional weapons systems, cruise and ballistic missiles, blue-water naval forces, and nuclear weapons are all part of Beijing’s aggressive plan. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett have written a compelling analysis of China’s plans and programs, and lay out a comprehensive and persuasive proposal for America’s response. Policy-makers must read this book.”
Ambassador John R. Bolton, former permanent representative to the United Nations and under-secretary of state for arms control and international security
To understand what China’s unprecedented rapid modernization and expansion of its military forces mean in terms of its clear objective to achieve regional supremacy in the western Pacific and beyond, Bowing to Beijing is an absolute must read. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett make clear that regardless of the vast economic relations between China and the U.S., unless we maintain our military deterrence capability, a serious confrontation looms just over the horizon.”
Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet
My Motown soul brother Brett Decker and Wild Bill Triplett take aim at communist China and hit the red dragon square between the eyes. Patriotic Americans need to read about the growing Chinese threat in Bowing to Beijing.”
Ted Nugent, American rock ’n’ roll, sporting, and political activist icon, and bestselling author of Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto

While the details themselves are extremely engaging - the amazing stories of Chinese shenanigans via its puppet state in North Korea alone are worth the price alone - the power of this book is it the way it boldly ties all these tales of communist misbehavior into a package that leaves no doubt as to their purpose: total destruction of American power and values.
Bowing to Beijing is an extremely partisan book to be sure. If you're a red blooded Republican or Tea Party member you will bask in the light of each explosive page. If you're a open minded liberal, and perhaps once a fan of Mr. Obama's flowery rhetoric and charismatic podium personality you will certainly be quickly offended, but if you dare to read on and are willing to accept damning facts for what they are, you will be shaken to your core. You will also find that there is plenty of blame to go around for communist apologists both sides of the aisle.
I read every major book on China and frankly some of them are a long, hard slog to get through (are you listening Mr. Kissinger?). Bowing to Beijing is sharp, tight, readable book that could and should shake the political arena in 2012, where China policy will be the biggest issue. When you are done, pass this book along or buy two copies and mail one to Washington or your state capital. Chalk one up for the "blue team!"
-Greg Autry, coauthor of Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action
It is interesting that after we saved China from the Japanese during WW II that China is now seeking methods to dominate our Country & Society now.
One quote that I have used many times of the importance of history is, "To Learn of the Past - To Live in the Present - To Plan for the Future."

It is quite notable that the current passive arms proliferation strategy has been unfruitful.
The Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) perhaps should be revisited and beefed up dramatically.
He also notes the connection between Tim Geithner and Henry Kissinger over PRC currency valuations.
This insight raises some new questions about the AIG Financial Product investigation and bailouts.
Triplett's book should make investigators in Congress probe these special questions with more zeal.
There is a very real concern that "scouring" or "sterilizing" our Sinologist experts in government will undermine us.
This expertise issue alone is a serious matter but reads like an understatement to avoid any "alarmist" themes of Neo-McCarthyism. This is not hype. The deficiency of non-Kissingerian expertise is a serious matter in government. The personality cult of Dr. Kissinger, however, is worshiped for its exercise of raw power without any accountability or oversight by Congress.
If you are a Christopher Hitchens fan, then this book will fill in the gaps for the non-Sinologist intellectuals.
The book is written with simplistic prose that might be easy to read but it might also understate the issues to the casual reader. These PRC issues are not hype, rhetoric, or puffery. The gravity of these matters might be lost on some readership.
This book gently walks on many egg shells, but it should smash statues. The informed reader will still gain much from this.
I'm giving this book to family for Christmas.
