Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
China is now the "factory floor" for global production. It sells to the world at the competition-crushing "China Price" and we as consumers benefit greatly. Unfortunately for the world, this story doesn't end with a cornucopia of cheap Chinese goods on our store shelves. Rather, it begins precisely at this point. It is a story about how the rapid and often chaotic industrialization of the most populous country on the planet has put China on a collision course with the rest of the world. The emergence of China as an economic superpower is currently moving on a path that will affect literally every nation and every person in the world, and potentially cause great turmoil and conflict. The primary purpose of this book is to raise the level of economic and political awareness to a level which will allow all of us, including the Chinese, to begin to think much more deeply about how to stop the Coming China Wars and to participate in the set of very hard choices that must be made.

"China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel ... even food, water, and air. In The Coming China Wars, best-selling author Peter Navarro previews all these potential conflicts - and reveals the urgent, radical decisions that must be made to avoid catastrophe."--BOOK JACKET.
