    Henry A. Kissinger, Nobel Peace Prize winner

  • “Tom Christensen…has the rare ability to transcend the conventional…debates about China and to see the country simultaneously as a power with the potential to disrupt global politics in many negative ways and as a country that the United States must engage as a partner in solving global problems…If you read only one book on China, make it The China Challenge.”

    Anne-Marie Slaughter, president, New America Foundation
