"America Second" By Isaac Stone Fish
The past few years have seen a seismic shift in relations between China and the United States – from eager economic partners, to wary frenemies, to open rivals. What happened?
In America Second, Isaac Stone Fish traces the evolution of the Chinese Communist Party’s influence in America. He reveals how America’s leaders initially welcomed China’s entry into the U.S. economy, believing that trade and engagement would lead to a more democratic China. But this hasn’t been the case. In his book, Fish explains how many of America’s business leaders and politicians have become too dependent on China to challenge it.
