The China Fallacy is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand American policy toward China. Its thoughtful recommendations on improving U.S.-China relations should be weighed seriously by all concerned with the impact of China’s rise.

The United States is now at a historical crossroads in the Asia Pacific. It can either continue seeking to contain China while adopting more protectionist measures that restrict Chinese trade and investment. Or it can strive to achieve a new paradigm for improved U.S.-China relations, drawing on America’s superior military, economic and political power.
Former White House and State Department official Donald Gross argues in his thought-provoking and landmark new book, THE CHINA FALLACY: How the U.S. Can Benefit from China’s Rise and Avoid Another Cold War, that the best way to overcome the “China threat” and advance U.S. interests in the region is by achieving a stable peace with China through the resolution of outstanding security and economic conflicts between the two countries.
Sure to provoke controversy, The China Fallacy is critical reading for anyone who wants to understand past, present and future U.S. policy toward China.
