Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Claws of the Panda tells the story of Canada's failure to construct a workable policy towards the People's Republic of China. In particular the book tells of Ottawa's failure to recognize and confront the efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to infiltrate and influence Canadian politics, academia, and media, and to exert control over Canadians of Chinese heritage. Claws of the Panda gives a detailed description of the CCP's campaign to embed agents of influence in Canadian business, politics, media and academia. The party's aims are to be able to turn Canadian public policy to China's advantage, to acquire useful technology and intellectual property, to influence Canada's international diplomacy, and, most important, to be able to monitor and intimidate Chinese Canadians and others it considers dissidents. The book traces the evolution of the Canada-China relationship over nearly 150 years. It shows how Canadian leaders have constantly misjudged the reality and potential of the relationship while the CCP and its agents have benefited from Canadian naivete.
Review Quote*"An important book ... as compelling as it is disturbing."
Review Quote*"In Claws of the Panda, veteran journalist and commentator Jonathan Manthorpe issues a challenge to Canadians to engage in shaping our relationship with a newly assertive China. Rigorously researched, drawing on primary sources and his own deep knowledge of China, Manthorpe paints a convincing portrait of a country intent on moulding the relationship with Canada on its own terms and in its own interests. A must read."
