Hundred-Year Marathon : Chinas Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower

Sunday, March 22, 2015

"Hundred-Year Marathon: Chinas Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower" is an important new book but one which fails to adequately address America's responsibility for its own decline and China's rise.

Should Americans be afraid of China? According to Michael Pillsbury's new book, "Hundred-Year Marathon : Chinas Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower", yes, Americans should be very afraid.

China is rapidly becoming the dominant economic power on Earth and nothing that the United States or Europe does can change that.

One of the U.S. governments leading Asia experts reveals the hidden Chinese strategy fueling that countrys rise--and why American's continue to misunderstand China.

For more than forty years, the United States has reached out to China, helping it develop a booming economy and take its place on the world stage, in the belief that there is little to fear--and everything to gain--from Chinas rise. But what if the Chinese have had a different plan all along?

The Hundred-Year Marathon reveals Chinas secret strategy to supplant the United States as the worlds dominant power, and to do so by 2049, the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Republic.

Michael Pillsbury, who has served in senior national security positions in the U.S. government since the criminal regimes Richard (Tricky Dick) Nixon and war criminal Henry Kissinger, draws on Chinese documents, speeches, and books (many of them never translated into English) to reveal the roots of this strategy in traditional Chinese statecraft and track how the Chinese are putting it into practice today. But, Pillsbury views the information through a limited perspective without understanding why the United States has fallen behind economically. Blaming China for America's transition from a nation of innovation and manufacturing to a nation of war and creeping fascism cheats readers the opportunity to understand the reality of China's rise to power and America's decline.

Pillsbury shows how self-interested American policymakers have been willfully blind to China's developments for decades--and he includes himself in that critique, as he was once a leading voice in favor of aiding China. He also calls for the United States to design a new, more competitive strategy toward China as it really is, and not as we might wish it to be.

The Hundred-Year Marathon is a wakeup call for all Americans concerned about its leaders have misread the greatest national security challenge of the twenty-first century but leaves readers without any meaningful solutions.
