Book Talk: ‘America Second: How America’s Elites are Making China Stronger’
Monday, March 28, 2022
8pm HKT on Zoom
‘America Second: How America’s Elites are Making China Stronger’, published in February by Knopf, exposes a deep network of Beijing’s influence in America, built quietly over the years through prominent figures like former secretaries of state Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright, Disney chairman Bob Iger, and members of the Bush family. Stone Fish traces the evolution of the Chinese Communist Party’s influence in America. He shows how America’s leaders initially welcomed China’s entry into the U.S. economy, believing that trade and engagement would lead to a more democratic China. And he explains how business people and politicians have become too dependent on China to challenge it. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.
Isaac Stone Fish is the founder and CEO of the research firm Strategy Risks, which quantifies corporate exposure to China. He is also a Washington Post Global Opinions contributing columnist, a contributor to CBSN, an adjunct at NYU’s Center for Global Affairs, a visiting fellow at the Atlantic Council, a columnist on China risk at Barron’s, and a frequent speaker at events around the United States and the world. Previously he served as Foreign Policy Magazine’s Asia Editor: he managed coverage of the region, and wrote about the politics, economics, and international affairs of China, Japan, and North Korea. A fluent Mandarin speaker and formerly a Beijing correspondent for Newsweek, Stone Fish spent seven years living in China prior to joining Foreign Policy. He is a graduate of Columbia University, where he studied Chinese literature.
