China expert Robert Spalding 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. It’s almost too late to undo the shocking, though nearly invisible, victories of the Chinese.

In Stealth War, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spalding reveals China’s motives and secret attacks on the West. Chronicling how our leaders have failed to protect us over recent decades, he provides shocking evidence of some of China’s most brilliant ploys, including:

Placing Confucius Institutes in universities across the United States that serve to monitor and control Chinese students on campus and spread communist narratives to unsuspecting American students.

Offering enormous sums to American experts who create investment funds that funnel technology to China.

Signing a thirty-year agreement with the US that allows China to share peaceful nuclear technology, ensuring that they have access to American nuclear know-how.

Spalding’s concern isn’t merely that America could lose its position on the world stage. More urgently, the Chinese Communist Party has a fundamental loathing of the legal protections America grants its people and seeks to create a world without those rights.

Despite all the damage done so far, Spalding shows how it’s still possible for the U.S. and the rest of the free world to combat—and win—China’s stealth war.

HOT POLITICAL TOPIC: The question of whether China poses a threat to the United States is far from decided—and its resolution goes beyond party lines and the politics of our media landscape. Mainstream media outlets, including the Wall Street journal and Harper’s, frequently disagree on the matter.

MILITARY BACKGROUND: With years of B-12 pilot experience under his belt, along with years as serving as a general, Spalding is attractive to a military audience.

CHINA BACKGROUND: As Senior Director for Strategy to the President, he was the chief architect of the framework for national competition in the Trump administration, where he earned recognition for his knowledge of Chinese economic competition, cyber warfare, and political influence.

Robert Spalding retired from the U.S. Air Force as a brigadier general after more than 25 years of service. He is a former China strategist for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, as well as a senior defense official and defense attache to China. He earned his doctorate in economics and mathematics from the University of Missouri and is fluent in Mandarin.

“[A] searing exposé of how the Chinese Communist Party continues to conduct its war for
influence around the world.”
Washington Examiner

“As the former US Department of Defense attaché to China, General Spalding is in a unique position to offer a gripping tale of the multiple battlefronts of China’s war against America. Ten years from now, readers will remember this seminal work that accurately describes the current and future states of play between the world’s great powers.”
