    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.

    Overall

    The narration on this book is very good. however, the book itself does have some significant flaws. For example, at one point in the book the author runs on about a projected aids epidemic in China due to past faulty blood handling procedures. He paints this as a great catastrophe even leading perhaps to large scale civil unrest, which he then says could involve as many as a projected 50 million people infected. The problem though is that you are talking about 50 million out of a population of over 1.2 billion. So, this hardly seems like the end of Chinese civilization. At another point in the book the author complains about Chinese chemicals ending up in drug labs across Europe. But here the problem is that the author does not clearly ever cite what he bases his conclusions on. I do like the part where the author digresses about unfair labor/trade practices, semi-slave labor conditions in China, and Communist Party/entrepenerial corruption. But, why did the author not write the book just about these topics? He easily could have filled volumes on this alone. The author attempted to cover way too much ground and way too sparsely. The problem is that his book comes across just as a bunch of rants and China bashing, instead of a serious analysis. I hope the author goes back to the drawing board, really travels to China (he had only been in surrounding countries) and gets his ducks in a row.
