Description - Fearing China by Terry Duaine Wittenmyer
The U.S. media and politicians tell us that China is a threat to our very survival, claiming that they take our jobs, pollute the world, repress their own people, and represent all that is opposed to our values and our way of life. However, Terry Wittenmyer takes on the media, the politicians, and the "experts" to show you why China should not be feared.
Go on a journey of exploration to learn what's unfolding in China today, and along the way, discover important moments from China's past that influence its present. Look beyond the headlines and into the statistical facts and the untold "rest of the story," to better understand China's rise. With each chapter, you'll be challenged to consider a different path for U.S.-China relations-a path that considers China not as our greatest threat, but as our greatest opportunity.
The news headlines warn us of the growing threats from China. We're warned to fear China's military buildup, which "threatens the Pacific region," and their exponential economic growth, which "is accomplished through currency manipulation and unfair trade practices." Each day brings new warnings and more reasons why we should fear China. But do the headlines tell the whole story, and is that story even accurate? Explore the truth behind the headlines as the reality of China is revealed. Should the U.S. counter China's growing military power?
Is China the biggest threat to our cyberspace security? Is Trade with China destroying our economy?
Are Chinese products like toys and food dangerous?
Is China the most polluted country in the world?
Should we refuse to work with China on technology?
Is China stealing all that we create by ignoring intellectual property rights?
Should the U.S. promote democracy in China?
Are human rights in China ignored with the denial of basic freedoms like the
right to vote, limits on freedom of speech, and a one-child policy?
Is Chinese communism a threat to the West? Is a growing gap between rich and poor setting the stage for a grand revolution in China?
Asking the question: Should we fear China?
