About the Book

""Sam’s book is a timely reminder that our country’s greatest tools to meet any challenge from China include what we do to invest in our own competitive advantage, the promotion of human rights and working with other countries. Easy to read for folks who want an introduction to the current state of U.S.-China relations with plenty of heft for the serious China watcher." 

- Rick Larsen, Member of Congress

Expertly researched and thought-out, yet approachable and witty, this book will immediately draw in anyone interested in global affairs, foreign policy and the future of America's role on the world stage.

This book provides a fascinating insider's look at how China is changing rapidly today, how these changes pose grave risks to the rest of the world, and how the U.S. and its allies can best address these challenges. Trade wars and U.S. presidents may come and go, but the fundamental dynamics of the U.S.-China relationship will remain in place for years to come.

Challenging China is a popular current events explanation of how China has become more authoritarian and expansionist and what strategies the U.S. and its allies need to adopt to address this new China. Although delving into serious issues, Challenging China is written in an engaging way and probably the only book on China that references Dolly Parton, LeBron James and Bruce Springsteen.
