Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

America's fate looks dicey in the showdown with the Chinese juggernaut, warns this vigorous jeremiad. Fingleton (In Praise of Hard Industries) argues that China's "East Asian" development model of aggressive mercantilism and a state-directed economy "effortlessly outperforms" America's fecklessly individualistic capitalism. Nor will economic development democratize a "quasi-fascist" Confucian culture. More likely, Fingleton contends, is "the Confucianization of America" as Chinese wealth subverts American politics and media. Fingleton's brief against Confucian societies can seem vague and paranoid; fortunately, his economic analysis is incisive. His most telling critique is of American business elites and policymakers, who have wrecked the U.S. economy, he insists, by promoting laissez-faire nostrums, free trade and a hollowed-out service economy. More compelling than Fingleton's exaggerated dread of the Confucian dragon is his well-supported case for economic nationalism.

Review

"It’s probably the most important book that’s ever been written about the future of our republic."--Thom Hartmann for Buzzflash.com
“Eamonn Fingleton demonstrates once again why his analyses of modern
capitalism deserve serious attention. As he has done before with Japan, he
identifies the elements of China’s business model that depart sharply from
easy Western assumptions---and he lays out the consequences of seeing China
the way outsiders would like it to be, rather than the way it is.” ---James Fallows, Atlantic Monthly.
“With capitalism spreading in China, the world expects communism to
be swept away by democracy. Eamonn Fingleton expertly shows why it is
not to be. This book begins the understanding of the challenge the United States faces from an authoritarian China strengthened by capitalism.” ---Former Senator Ernest F. Hollings
"The more heavily that U.S. media conglomerates invest in China, the
more vulnerable they become to Chinese pressure to censor their U.S. reportage. As Eamonn Fingleton shows, what we don’t know can hurt us. This is a fascinating book with truly unique insights.” ---Pat Choate, author of Agents of Influence
“Filling in the missing pieces of the puzzle that is China, Eamonn Fingleton’s riveting and provocative book is required reading for anyone who cares about the U.S.-China relationship.”---Senator Byron Dorgan
“Eamonn Fingleton offers a compelling corrective to the naive and often self-interested view of U.S. elites that as China grows more capitalistic, it will necessarily grow more democratic.” ---Robert Kuttner, coeditor, The American Prospect
“Fingleton brings his penetrating analytical skills to bear on every dimension of the U.S.-China economic relationship, even the uncomfortable facts that many policymakers...
