Book of the week

Readers will notice a new feature to the right: the book of the week.

Each week I will suggest a new book that might be of interest to readers of this blog.

This week's book is About Face, by veteran journalist James Mann, who has just released a new book on US-China relations entitled The China Fantasy.

In About Face, Mann provides a thorough retelling of the US relationship with China since Nixon's visit, showing how the same patterns reemerge in every administration, whether Republican or Democratic. It is both accessible and erudite, providing a useful guide to understanding a relationship that will only become more important over time.
