Deceiving the Sky shines a light on threatening Chinese practices designed to undermine the U.S. economy, weaken and ultimately defeat our military, and diminish our global influence … and how our leaders in Washington too often failed to understand the preparations Beijing is making for a future confrontation with the United States.In 2000, Gertz's book The China Threat was prescient in assessing Communist China's goals and intentions. Deceiving the Sky includes new details of the danger and proves his warning was correct.
The Chinese military buildup is designed specifically to cripple American military capabilities and to dominate the Asia-Pacific … and how the Chinese military is preparing for showdowns with the United States in space as well as the digital realm
How Chinese spies steal American corporate secrets and advanced technology to build up Beijing's military and surveillance apparatus … theft estimated to cost Americans as much as $600 million annually — a truly staggering sum
The shameful episode of the Obama Administration rejecting an application for asylum from a high-level, would-be Chinese defector over fears of angering Beijing
Why Beijing pursues policies to deceive Western leaders about their intentions … and how they depend on their “willful blindness” in order to succeed
How Chinese authorities have mastered “high-tech totalitarianism” to monitor its 1.4 billion people, crush dissent, and strengthen its chokehold on Hong Kong …. and how China plans to use its high-tech prowess to control the internet and gain advantage over Western nations
More than this, Gertz’s Deceiving the Sky shows how policies of appeasement toward China favored by Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others have utterly failed … and how the shift-change in approach taken by the Trump Administration is the best way to counter the growing China threat.
As Gertz explains, the current administration is fighting back, and is the best hope in a generation for countering China’s grand plans for achieving global supremacy under a new world order based on an ideology of Communism with Chinese characteristics.
"Deceiving the Sky is a great example of Gertz's special brand of investigative journalism: thorough analysis and a blend of leaked material, off-the-record interviews, official interviews, and research. Gertz's coverage of China's threats to the US and our allies in space and cyberspace makes this book a 'must read."'
