The China fantasy : how our leaders explain away Chinese repression by Jim Mann( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Journalist and China expert Mann examines the evolution of American policy toward China and asks, Does it make sense? What are our ideas and hidden assumptions about China? In this vigorous look at China's political evolution and its future, Mann explores two scenarios popular among the policy elite. The Soothing Scenario contends that the spread of capitalism will gradually bring about a development of democratic institutions and a progressive human rights policy. In the Upheaval Scenario, the contradictions between rich and poor, between cities and the countryside, and between the openness of the economy and the unyielding Leninist system will eventually lead to a revolution, chaos, or collapse. Against this backdrop, Mann poses a third scenario: What will happen if Chinese capitalism continues to evolve and expand but the government fails to liberalize? He explores this alternate possibility and offers a startling vision of our future with China."--Publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress

The Obamians : the struggle inside the White House to redefine American power by Jim Mann( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive analysis of the events, ideas, personalities, and conflicts that have defined Obama's foreign policy. When Barack Obama took office, he brought with him a new group of foreign policy advisors intent on carving out a new global role for America in the wake of the Bush administration's war in Iraq. Now the acclaimed author of Rise of the Vulcans offers a definitive, evenhanded account of the messier realities they've faced in implementing their policies. In The Obamians, acclaimed author James Mann tells the compelling story of the administration's struggle to enact a coherent and effective set of policies in a time of global turmoil. At the heart of this struggle are the generational conflicts between the Democratic establishment--including Robert Gates, Hillary Clinton, and Joseph Biden--and Obama and his inner circle of largely unknown, remarkably youthful advisors, who came of age after the Cold War had ended. Written by a proven master at elucidating political underpinnings, even to the politicians themselves, The Obamians is a pivotal reckoning of this historic president and his inner circle and of how their policies may or may not continue to shape America and the world
