From the bestselling author of Flags of our Fathers, Flyboys, and The Imperial Cruise,
a riveting history of turbulent U.S.-China relations from America's founding to the Vietnam War.


THE CHINA MIRAGE by James Bradley

As the U.S. again considers military action in Asia because of the 'threat' of China, bestselling author James Bradley recounts in THE CHINA MIRAGE how Washington's past misunderstandings of China's supposed 'threats' have resulted in 200,000 Americans being killed in three preventable Asian wars, gave rise to McCarthyism and has distorted U.S. foreign policy. Thrillingly told, THE CHINA MIRAGE brings to light America's misconceptions about China and pulls back the curtain on the troubled history that defines U.S.-Chinese relations to this day.



Praise for THE CHINA MIRAGE:

"The back story to one of the world's most important relationships—the United States and China."
NPR's Morning Edition

"Riveting….If you bought any other of Mr. Bradley's books, you need to put this one on the shelf along with it."
—Don Imus, Imus in the Morning

"Well worth a read….The new book covers, better than I've seen anywhere else, the history of how many of the wealthiest individuals and institutions of the East Coast United States in the 19th century got their money—including Franklin Delano Roosevelt's grandfather's money—by illegally selling opium in China….For the full account, I recommend Bradley's book."
—David Swanson, Counterpunch

"Bradley's most engrossing work on Asia yet….A spellbinding history of turbulent U.S.-China relations from the 19th century to World War II and Mao's ascent."
KATU AM Northwest

"A vivid, bracing and careful study….There are lessons to be learned about war and peace and Bradley's valuable book offers a warning about past and future unnecessary entanglements."
—Murray Polner, History News Network

"Bradley is sharp and rueful, and a voice for a more seasoned, constructive vision of our international relations with East Asia."
—Peter Lewis, Christian Science Monitor

"The China Mirage underscores the missed opportunities in our relationship with China—a lesson for our current leaders."
