Fabulous book, every page is loaded with info and documentation. Brilliant writer, love when books are short but packed tight with info, no struggling through pages of uninteresting info. This is a grand book, everyone should read it to know all about Beijing. Decker is truly brilliant.

Bowing to Beijing is a stunning indictment of the Obama administration's failed foreign policy backed by the frightening details of an America caught in a geopolitical death spiral carefully engineered by the Chinese Communist Party. Brett M. Decker and William C. Triplett, II have chosen to pull no punches as they line up the specifics of China's unyielding attack on America's economy, values, and military position and point them straight at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

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!"

This book gives a concise review of what the United States can face as China becomes more powerful into the future.

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."

Bill Triplett has taken a long hard look at pressing issues between the US and China.
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.

This book has helped me understand the implications of our debt policy for our security as a nation. We now owe over $15 trillion, much of it to China. This gives a government hostile to our very identity sway in our decisions. The supercommittee in Congress is poised to announce failure in coming to agreement on how to curtail our spending; meanwhile Peter Schweizer's explaining why we should Throw Them All Out. The details in Bowing to Beijing on government and politicians complicity only reinforces that message, case by case. President Obama needs to read this book and quickly change course. He may talk tough about China "playing by the rules" coming up on an election but his spending policies make it clear that he has no intention of adding any bite to his bark.

I'm giving this book to family for Christmas.

This is one of the best books I have read in a while. An eye opener about things that have been happening to this country while we fell asleep. Wake Up America, our country is being sold away and soon we will have nothing left for our children and their children.

There is room for plenty of disagreement about how China and America will interact in the future and what our policies should be to shape that reality. What there is not room for is a fantastical view of China that ascribes our differences to mere accidents of culture, history or national interest. China and the United States differ for one reason -- because the Chinese government is run by and for the world's most powerful, murderous and amoral gang of thugs. True the Chinese government has evolved, but only from one that openly celebrates murder while broadcasting calls for more to a nation that keeps those celebrations a little more private and has hired a fancy PR firm.

What Brett Decker and Bill Triplett have done is strip away the PR firm and let everyone who wants to see Chinese government for what it really is -- a murderous enemy of its own people and a threat to everything real civilization has achieved. Only on the basis of that reality can anyone hope to come to grips with what will be America's greatest challenge for decades to come.

It was an eye opener. USA needs to get their ducks in order so as not to become another third world nation.

Brett M. Decker and William C. Triplett II jolt readers of "Bowing to Beijing" with the realization that China is no longer a benign and faraway land that makes a lot of inexpensive stuff that Americans buy at Wal-Mart. The authors lay out the facts about a rising superpower that is poised to challenge the United States for military and economic supremacy in very short order. While the U.S. has no entitlement to its current No. 1 position, the fact is the nation has been a force for peace and stability in the post-World War II era. In contrast, China has continually violated fundamental human rights of both its own citizens and its neighbors, as the authors point out. Never having renounced its communist roots, Red China is raising red flags over its global intentions.

Sadly, with Barack Obama in the White House, America is losing its capacity to serve as a counterweight to an imperialist China. The president apparently shares with this nation's detractors the view that the U.S. has been a malevolent force on the world stage and has taken every opportunity to apologize for America's behavior. In doing so, he sends a signal to China and other ill-intentioned adversaries that the days of the U.S. as a world power are past and consequently, they're free to pursue their goals unimpeded.

If Americans allow the president to carry out the nation's withdrawal from its leadership role, the consequences are likely to be unpleasant and long-lasting. Decker and Triplett have done a service by detailing the dangers of "Bowing to Beijing" and I strongly recommend it to readers.

To this commenter, it has always been apparent, that the Obama agenda has been to weaken and diminish America. His entire background and upbringing, has been antiAmerican. His father was a card carrying communist, and his mother, also. His mentor, Franklin Marshall Davis, another hater of anything American. How can one so young and impressionable, not be swayed into a world of Marxism,Communism, and Socialism.? Why has he sealed all his school,medical, and personal records.? No other President in history, has been as secretive. Please, Mr.President, what are you hiding, and why.?
