Description

As the world’s second-largest economy, China is extending its influence across the globe with the complicity of democratic nations. Joanna Chiu has spent a decade tracking China’s propulsive rise, from the political aspects of the multi-billion-dollar “New Silk Road” global investment project to a growing sway on foreign countries and multilateral institutions through “United Front” efforts. Chiu offers readers background on the protests in Hong Kong, underground churches in Beijing, and exile Uyghur communities in Turkey, and exposes Beijing’s high-tech surveillance and aggressive measures that result in human rights violations against those who challenge its power. The new world disorder documented in China Unbound lays out the disturbing implications for global stability, prosperity, and civil rights everywhere.

Praise for the book

A vivid, perspicacious and ultimately disillusioned book about the current direction of China. This is the deeply informed account of a talented reporter from a middle power, Canada; one that explores a rising China’s fitful relations with a wide range of countries, and reveals what’s left of its domestic reforms as being driven by an obsession with ever greater control. China Unbound delivers, at the same time, an urgent and much-needed caution against xenophobia toward Chinese people at a time of growing tensions with a new superpower. -- Howard W. French, Professor, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and author of Born in Blackness: Africa, Africans, and the Making of the Modern World, 1471 to the Second World War
