You Will Be Assimilated - David P. Goldman's new book.

How China manages to defy gravity

But if the US doesn’t have a comprehensive strategy to deal with China, not one-on-one but as leader of a coalition, Japan, Vietnam, and India by themselves, even without Australia and the US, will not yield but may violently clash with China. China cannot deal with the Westernized world as it did with its periphery for three millennia. The US can’t deal with a world where China, India, Indonesia, and Africa are rising as it did with the USSR or with Germany and Japan during World War II.

That is, both the US and China would be better off if they reformed, and these reforms could stave off the growing Cold War. Will they do it?

In contrast, the more standard view on the same site........
I have a certain notoriety among the lesser gods........

Deplore the betrayal of the HK agreement by the PRC government all you want to IZZ: it is irrelevant in relation to the big picture rise of the PRC clossus as painted by David Goldman. Hong Kong from Beijing's persoective is nothing but a pesky little fly to be squashed at its leisure.

Such hubris is dangerous.

I more or less agree with Goldman's assessment of the situation.....'>.......

I absolutely agree - as is the apparent lack of checks and balances that encourage it.
