Publisher's Synopsis

<p><strong>Winner of the 2022 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing</strong></p> <p>As the world's second-largest economy, China is extending its influence across the globe with the complicity of democratic nations.</p> <p>Joanna Chiu has spent a decade tracking China's propulsive rise, from the political aspects of the multi-billion-dollar "New Silk Road" global investment project to a growing sway on foreign countries and multilateral institutions through "United Front" efforts.</p> <p>For too long, Western societies have mishandled or simply ignored Beijing's actions out of narrow self-interest. Decades of willful misinterpretation have over time become complicity in the toxic diplomacy, human rights abuses and foreign interference seen from China today, Chiu argues.</p> <p>Engaging chapters transport readers to a frozen lake in Russia, protests in Hong Kong, underground churches in Beijing, and exile Uyghur communities in Turkey, exposing Beijing's high-tech surveillance and aggressive measures resulting in human rights violations against those who challenge its power.</p> <p>The new world disorder documented in <em>China Unbound</em> lays out the disturbing implications for global stability, prosperity, and civil rights everywhere.</p>
