    Crouching Tiger is the 4th book I ve completed this spring to help inform me about the increasing competition between China and the U S and the real dangers of conflict in the western Pacific Peter Navarro s focus is on the military buildup underway in China and their usurping of scattered island groups in order to create a defensive shield, all of it made possible by their huge economic gains in the last 25 or 30 years Navarro writes what everyone else is writing, or at least what I m reading There s a concern that a real danger of conflict exists But Crouching Tiger is organized differently than other studies It s presented in short chapters, each of them dealing with a specific issue military budgets, for instance, or the feasibility of a grand bargain with China The chapters begin with questions which the text answers As you might expect, this use of concisely written explanations to specific questions there are 45 of them neatly isolates the many issues and makes their understanding easier His assessment, like the others I ve read and am reading, is sobering The Chinese sense of having endured a century of humiliation at the hands of the west coupled with the American unwillingness to give up its primacy as the leader of liberal order in the western Pacific may make some kind of confrontation inevitable He spends some time discussing the now famous Thucydidean Trap, the idea 1st written about 2500 years ago ...

    While the world presently is ultra focused on the global threat of ISIS or ISIL as it is sometimes called, the world is missing the possibly brutal threat of China Navarro s thesis concerns China s hegemonic desire to become a superpower through its military, economic, and political policies According to the author, China will probably succeed until American and Euro policies succeed in addressing this formidable threat Readers will find their certainty about America s superiority challenged and perhaps misunderstood.It has been repeatedly stated that unless we learn from history, it will repeat itself, perhaps even exceed its own record One needs then to read and then analyze the theories and facts herein carefully delineated Every chapter begins with a question and possible answer choices It isn t hard to figure out the answers after a while One might respond fearfully unless one thinks about other unknown American policies to contradict the Chinese realities For example, in one chapter we discover that China is seeking to establish military bases throughout Asia, all the way south to Vietnam and Cambodia to counteract the presence of American military bases also throughout Asia Combine that with the chapters about the military armaments that both America and China possess, and one realizes there is a massive power struggle playing out The question becomes what happens when an accident or first response action occurs...

    This book clearly lays out the increasing challenge China makes to the American hegemony in Asia China is building its fighting capacity and is going to be able to take on America in a long drawn war America will this not be able to dictate the terms of engagement pretty soon Navarro really does not like China According to him, China is or less the Evil Empire its government seeks to control the seas surrounding it, build up its defense capacities, bring countries around it under its influence, finance academics in other countries to influence public opinion, pollute the world and grow its economy by destroying jobs in America. And it do all these unscrupulously Given that China has already been labeled as the Enemy, of course war would be inevitable The author has already decided that the Chinese government cannot be trusted, and many times it is characterized as worse than the old Soviet Union one who communicated with the Americans and tried not to rock the boat too much We in Singapore are indeed worried about the possibility of war in South East Asia as well However, China s behavior is totally what one would expect in a rising global power By labeling China only as the enemy is...

    This was an interesting, if alarmist, book I don t recall how it ended up on my reading list but after finishing it I wasn t the least surprised to learn the author became an advisor in the Trump White House Navarro goes through the known, and speculated, strengths of the Chinese economy, military and government style to make the case of the danger that it poses to US and global interests While always taking the high estimates of everything from the number of nuclear warheads to the potential capabilities of its latest weapons, Navarro seeks to paint a picture of a US falling behind and bickering domestically while the Chinese advantage continues to grow Even if he sometimes has to acknowledge the differing assessments made by other regional experts he always manages to twist them from an acknowledgement of the possibility of conflict to his preferred narrative of an inevitable one Nonetheless, he does manage to do a great job of running down the list of potential flash points that could get out of hand from the obvious, North Korea, to the obscure, a territorial dispute with India frozen since the 1960s It is no surprise the...

    Navarro is the White House s main trade advisor on dealing with Chinese influence As such, his penned thoughts is a must read for anyone that has any dealing in capital markets or are living in the region One thing that really stood out to me was how much Navarro knew about the Chinese, it was in contrast to how traditional news outlets painted him backward and assumption based analytics I found these assumptions by those talking heads to be untrue He knows his stuff, and very very well and can stand up to any challenges by a...

    china is a military threat and the world needs to work together to prevent them from bullying their neighbours phillipines and vietnam in south china sea , influencing and spreading propaganda confucian schools in america , and manipulating their currency and subsidizing exports

    The last two chapters are fascinating, explaining when we face the threat from China, how the US behave to keep east Asia peace China is growing, however, we should always keep in mind what they did to hurt regional peace.

    A long time ago, someone asked me a question about China that still lingered in my mind What do they want And as I was reading Navarro s Crouching Tiger, I had this simple question in my head but, alas, did not get the answer even as I perused the book s discerning chapters Crouching Tiger was generally sloppy, and I personally believe it could have been engaging One feels like you re reading something composed by the King of Hearts full of important unimportant unimportant important histories, dos and donts and other mile high rules Readers, over, were promised a detective story and ti...

    It s a book is certainly worth reading The author didn t stress this too much but the parallels to the current situation with China and the events leading up to WW1 are alarming to say the least, although this time with nuclear weapon...
