Publisher's Summary

The signs are everywhere. China unilaterally claims the entire South China Sea as sovereign territory, then builds artificial islands to bolster its claim. It suddenly activates an air defense identification zone over the East China Sea, and threatens to down any aircraft that does not report its position. It builds roads into Indian territory, then redraws the maps to show that it is actually Chinese territory. The People's Republic under President Xi Jinping is quickly becoming The Bully of Asia.

Excellent!

Most riveting book I've listened to in some time. Time to get real about China.

Decent

While the author raises many points, it’s nothing new for “China watchers” or really anyone who takes interest in east Asia. What does come to the forefront though about halfway through is the authors personal grudge with China and his political leanings. Not quite an exposé or really much more than personal beliefs of the author. It’s well known China’s mal-intentioned actions. If you’re new to the study of east Asia, specifically China this would be a good read (or listen) for you though.

Great book but poor pronunciation

Would you consider the audio edition of Bully of Asia to be better than the print version?

The printed book is great but the audio mispronounces the word "hegemon", which is a problem because nearly every 2nd paragraph contains the word, as it is the central idea of the book. Very annoying. It's a shame because the book addresses the most important political issue of our time (the rise of China) and everyone should read or listen to it.
