Item Description...
Overview
Until this century, China had the largest population, the most advanced economy, and the strongest army on earth. It saw itself as the Hegemon, the ever-expanding central power around which the world revolved. Steven Mosher believes that China still sees itself in these terms today. In Hegemon, Mosher shows how the quest for domination has been something like an art form in Chinese statecraft, an enduring feature on the country's mysterious face that is often hidden from the West. He uses the lessons he extracts from Chinese history and culture to understand today's deepening rift between Washington and Beijing, arguing that our search for a "strategic partnership" has only encouraged Chinese expansionism. Mosher believes that to avoid a possible conflict with China, American diplomacy should have two clear goals: aiding the forces of democracy and blocking the military's great leap forward. Hegemon is as timely as today's headlines about Chinese efforts to influence U.S. elections and steal U.S. nuclear secrets. But it is also a masterful work of scholarship that reinforces Steven Mosher's reputation as one of our most thoughtful and provocative China watchers.

Publishers Description
For centuries, China had not only the largest population, but also the most advanced economy and the strongest army on earth. It saw itself as the Hegemon, the ever-expanding central power around which the world revolved. Steven Mosher believes that China still sees itself in these terms. In Hegemon, Mosher shows how the quest for domination has been something like an art form in Chinese statecraft, an enduring feature on the country's mysterious face that is often hidden from the west. Hegemon is a masterly inquiry into the ideas at the heart of Chinese culture and history. It is also as timely as today's headlines about Chinese efforts to influence U.S. elections and steal U.S. nuclear secrets and to establish China as a global superpower. A major work of scholarship and analysis, Hegemon reinforces Steven Mosher's reputation as one of our most thoughtful and provocative China Watchers. Maps, index, biography.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just Shy of Excellent  Nov 28, 2007
I was rather skeptical of this book; I thought perhaps it was of the mindless "China bad" variety that you occasionally see nowadays, aimed at paranoids and Americans who sense China is a threat but aren't sure exactly why. My skepticism, as it turns out, was unwarranted. This is a very good book and could have been an excellent one with a bit of tweaking. Still, I give it four stars for what is essentially page after page of quality information. To begin with, Mosher understands the Chinese mindset. The Chinese don't possess, for example, a linear view of history and they STILL - to this very day - consider themselves to be culturally superior to everyone everywhere. They were once a mighty empire and so will they be again. Or so they believe. The twentieth century was just a temporary setback. China resents the West and the US in particular and the author - meticulously - explains why. This book is also jam packed with military information - statistics galore and loads of details about the modernization of the PLA. In fact, it reads like a (lenghty but engaging) briefing in places. The amount of research is wholly impressive and it helps to concretize the central claim.

There are weak points, however. The author engages in some slippery slope thinking (first, China would reclaim nation/territory X, and then nation/territory Y) and he employs "us and them" into his narrative, i.e. "We need to ... to prevent them from ...." I don't think this is helpful, or very academic. There are also several unqualified claims, and a few other problems, but overwhelmingly the book works. When people/leaders in the West begin talking about China, I'm always amazed at how little they actually know. Westerners view China through a sort of filter, applying their own system of thought to what is an alien, ancient, and vastly idiosyncratic culture and way of thinking. What Mosher is especially good at is getting you to see things through the Chinese perspective. Although he never says so explicitly, a point that he is trying to make is: it doesn't matter what the West thinks of China (friend, foe, what have you) it only matters what China thinks of the West. And they (they being mainly the government) don't like us. At all. To find out what they think, read this book. As an author who has been observing China for nearly a decade, I have reached many of the same conclusions. They say the best books tell you what you already know, and so admittedly this added to my reading enjoyment. Western politicians especially ought to read this book. The author cuts through the academic fog surrounding China and gets down to brass tacks.

Mosher not afraid to speak the truth  Sep 18, 2007
In this book Mosher gives irrefutable evidence of the Chinese government's plan toward world domination. This threat is all the more dangerous considering how, especially since its forceful implementation of Communism, China has shown that it is willing to use any means, including Mao's genocide on the largest scale ever before seen in human history, to extend its absolute power over peoples' lives.
Mosher is far from a paranoid armchair thinker; he is an expert in Chinese culture who has lived in the country and speaks the language. Read the facts and see for yourself.
 
Mosher's personal vendetta against the PRC  Oct 5, 2005
Steven Mosher is concerned about China's human rights and he has good reason. However, after being arrested and expelled from the country for going somewhere the Chinese government barred foreigners from going, he now has a grudge. I'm not defending Beijing's policy of controlling where foreign researchers and journalists can travel in the country, but to extrapolate prohibitions on foreigners and authoritarian human rights practices is no means to condemn an entire nation. China's elites control the nation's population to avoid widespread famine. Their methods are less than perfect by far and their implementation at the village levels allows for improper actions, some of which would be illegal in the United States. If anything, this shows us how weak the central authority is in China, much like the late Ming and Qing empires before their collapse. The bottom line is Mosher is angry because Beijing made him persona non grata, thereby keeping him from futher exposing human rights abuses. When dealing with the Chinese government, nations must be careful, particularly when it concerns human rights, but this does not make everything the Chinese do part of a sinister plot.
 
hysterical nonsense  Aug 6, 2005
Mosher's central thesis, well documented with error, misunderstanding and paranoid bias, suggests China has been hell-bent on world domination since Mosher's ancestors were living in caves (possibly they still are). Fast-forward to the present, he finds a yellow menace in every teapot of the "Middle Kingdom" (which properly translated means, literally, "middle" or "center" "land", not "kingdom", a common misconception of non-Chinese speakers).

If you have a taste for right-wing paranoia, this makes an amusing read.

BTW, another reviewer, Chuck Devore, who writes a glowing review, happens to be the co-author of another of Mosher's paranoid fantasies "China Attacks" (Taiwan). No further comment.
 
The Chinese keep threatening while their apologists keep denying  Jul 20, 2005
The Chinese keep threatening while their apologists keep denying the threat.

Steven Mosher's Hegemon: China's Plan to Dominate Asia and the World is still relevant in the post-9/11 world.

The Islamofascist terrorists can hurt us, China can destroy us and actually aims to do so.

Chinese Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu warned in July 2005 that if the U.S. interfered in a Chinese attack on Taiwan it could lead to a Chinese nuclear attack on U.S. cities.

Gen. Xiong Guangkai, the Chinese Army's second highest ranking general, made the same threat ten years earlier in 1995, saying that Americans "care more about Los Angeles than you do about Taipei."

I'll believe the threats of Chinese generals over the self-serving denials of their stooges here in the West.
