Expertly researched and thought-out, yet approachable and witty, this book will immediately draw in anyone interested in global affairs, foreign policy and the future of America's role on the world stage. This book provides a fascinating insider's look at how China is changing rapidly today, how these changes pose grave risks to the rest of the world, and how the U.S. and its allies can best address these challenges. Trade wars and U.S. presidents may come and go, but the fundamental dynamics of the U.S.-China relationship will remain in place for years to come. Challenging China is a popular current events explanation of how China has become more authoritarian and expansionist and what strategies the U.S. and its allies need to adopt to address this new China. Although delving into serious issues, Challenging China is written in an engaging way and probably the only book on China that references Dolly Parton, LeBron James and Bruce Springsteen. Topics addressed include: The ongoing political crackdown in Hong Kong and heightened tensions with Taiwan The deteriorating human rights situation in China for normal Chinese as well as the Uyghur and Tibetan minorities Internal Chinese political and social dynamics and Xi Jinping's dominance of the party China's ongoing sense of anti-Western grievance and its new military assertiveness Increases in censorship and governmental control of dissent both off and online The effects of U.S. trade policy on China including the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Trump's tariff wars, and the new U.S.-China Trade Agreement How and why U.S. responses up to now have been ineffectual and counterproductive Climate change policy and how cooperating with China can work if we want it to New strategies to convince China to modify its behaviour while avoiding direct confrontation And much more! 'In Challenging China, Sam Kaplan provides a richly detailed, compelling essay on [Chinese leadership's] growing penchant toward authoritarianism, its impact on the people of China and its relations with the U.S. This book is a must-read, whether your focus is on China's military, its economy, Taiwan, Tibet, and/or its relationship with the U.S.' -Joe Borich, Former Consul General of U.S. Consulate in Shanghai, Former President of Washington State China Relations Council

Reviews for Challenging China: Smart Strategies for Dealing with China in the Xi Jinping Era

[Kaplan] combines first-hand experience with detailed research into the aims of China's expansionism and offers a road map for the United States to respond and prosper. -Nor Coquillard, Executive Director, Washington State China Relations Council In Challenging China, Sam Kaplan provides a richly detailed, compelling essay on [Chinese leadership's] growing penchant toward authoritarianism, its impact on the people of China and its relations with the U.S. This book is a must-read, whether your focus is on China's military, its economy, Taiwan, Tibet, and/or its relationship with the U.S. -Joe Borich, Former Consul General of U.S. Consulate in Shanghai, Former President of Washington State China Relations Council It's never been more difficult-or more necessary-for the world to find the right balance in how to approach China. While there are many areas where the west must rightfully challenge China, there are also many others that require collaboration if we are to avoid out right hot conflict. Sam has done a good job threading the needle between the challenges and opportunities, and in so doing, provides readers with a useful set of insights that can and should shape policy and political decisions. -Benjamin Shobert, Author Blaming China: It Might Feel Good But It Won't Fix America's Economy Sam's book is a timely reminder that our country's greatest tools to meet any challenge from China include what we do to invest in our own competitive advantage, the promotion of human rights and working with other countries. Easy to read for folks who want an introduction to the current state of U.S.-China relations with plenty of heft for the serious China watcher. -Rick Larsen, Member of Congress
