Hidden Hand: Exposing How the Chinese Communist Party Is Reshaping the World
Description'Hidden Hand is heavily sourced, crisply written and deeply alarming.' The Times 'This is a remarkable book with a chilling message.' The Guardian The Chinese Communist Party is determined to reshape the world in its image. The party is not interested in democracy. It sees only a bitter ideological struggle with the West, dividing the world into those who can be won over, and enemies. Many political and business elites have already been lured to their corner; others are weighing up a devil's bargain. Through its enormous economic power and covert influence operations, China is now weakening global institutions, aggressively targeting individual corporations, and threatening freedom of expression from the arts to academia. At the same time, Western security services are increasingly worried about incursions into our communications infrastructure. In a landmark study combining meticulous research with unique insights, Hidden Hand exposes the Chinese Communist Party's global program of subversion, and the threat it poses to democracy. We have already missed too many warning signs - now it is time to wake up.
