JAMES PECK is director of the U.S.-China Book Publication Project and adjunct professor in East Asian Studies and history at New York University.
"China is the subject matter of this book, but it is also the focus used by the author to analyze and dissect internal, highly classified American ideological explanations and justifications for its evolving strategies toward the entire 'communist bloc' throughout the Cold War.... Above all, Peck's study shows us the roots of American 'globalism' - its tendency to see the entire world as a single chessboard, much as the Marxist-Leninists did, rather than to deal discretely with different situations." - Chalmers Johnson, author of The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic."
