China has emerged as the "factory floor" for global produc- tion, providing the world with cheap goods at the astonishingly low "China Price." But there is a very steep price to pay for these low-budget consumables-a price that very well may have dire consequences for the health and security of the planet. The stark fact is that the current course of events foreshadows an extremely difficult future for the United States and for the world as a whole. In this eye-opening series of lectures, business professor and best-selling author Peter Navarro dissects the Coming China Wars and their implications for all mankind.

Professional reviews

"Detailing China's economy, trade policies, political manipulations, and internal problems, Professor Navarro gives an ugly and frightening picture of out-of-control totalitarian capitalism. His lectures are well organized, though an introduction, a recap, and, especially, "answers" to supposed "student questions" make for excessive repetition. Navarro seems more accustomed to a lectern than the intimacy of audiobook narration--he sounds like he's addressing a hall instead of speaking directly into someone's ear. One grows used to it, however, and his periodic mispronunciations can be ignored. Weaknesses aside, the material is important and well presented. The situation Navarro describes is dire and bodes worse for the future. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
