China’s world disorder
August 24th, 2021
Vancouver-based journalist, Joanna Chui has written China Unbound: A New World Disorder (House of Anansi $24.99) chronicling China’s moves to become a dominant world power through its multi-billion dollar “New Silk Road” global investment project and growing sway on foreign countries. Chiu offers a background on the protests in Hong Kong, underground churches in Beijing and exile Uyghur communities in Turkey, and exposes Beijing’s high-tech surveillance and aggressive measures that result in human rights violations against those who challenge its power. The new world disorder described by Chui also lays out disturbing implications for global stability, prosperity and civil rights everywhere. Photo Credit: Jennifer Osborne.
