Extract from the Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking, November 2013, written by Lionel Vairon, Vairon author of the “ China Threat? The Challenges, Myths and Realities of China’s Rise” and former diplomat to Cambodia, Thailand, and Iraq.

The Book “ China Threat ?” aims at giving a more balanced, less ideological view of this major 21st century event which is the rise of China as a superpower, and tries to explain all the different sides of Chinese policies, from economy to human rights, while stressing the true reasons to be concerned – like the rise of nationalism – and demystify some prejudices and biased about issues like military power or religious freedom.
