In his new book, America Second, Isaac Stone Fish traces the evolution of the Chinese Communist Party’s influence network in the United States. America Second explains how US businesspeople, politicians, and others have grown dependent on China; how that dependence influences the United States; and how the United States can counter that influence without descending into xenophobia, racism, or paranoia.
Isaac Stone Fish is the founder and CEO of Strategy Risks, a Washington Post Global Opinions contributing columnist, and a visiting fellow at the Atlantic Council. He was Asia Editor for Foreign Policy Magazine and Newsweek’s Beijing correspondent.
This book talk will be moderated by Jacques deLisle, Director of FPRI’s Asia Program.
