Books and Bites with General Robert Spalding

What does China’s inevitable rise to super power status mean for the United States? Join Newlines Institute Special Initiatives Director Azeem Ibrahim as he questions General Robert Spalding on how the US miscalculated and mismanaged US-China relations.

ABOUT THE BOOK: The book reveals the shocking success China has had infiltrating American institutions and compromising our national security. The media often suggest that Russia poses the greatest threat to America’s national security, but the real danger lies farther east. While those in power have been distracted and disorderly, China has waged a six-front war on America’s economy, military, diplomacy, technology, education, and infrastructure–and they’re winning.
