    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageThe China Mirage an enlightening and thought provoking book going behind the chimera curtain of AsianAmerican relations in search of truth This is the sort of historicalpolitical expose that every American citizen should take time to read and comparatively ponder thinking not to repeat war inducing blind sighted mistakes of the past that could and did leave cripplingrippling national regional and global effects “A Lie gets around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on” – Winston Churchill Nothing in this world happens in a vacuum Every action spawns infinite chains of actionreactions And when Bradley contemplated his father’s commentary and thoughts on the events leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War on through Vietnam he dug a little deeper a lot deeper – looking for the pebbles that set off war ripples shrouded in illusion “There mus

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageOne of the conspiracy theories popular on the Far Right is that Franklin D Roosevelt engineered the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to ensnare the US in World War II Like so many Right Wing fantasies this story is nearly 180 degrees distant from the truth OK many Left Wing fantasies are tooThe power of the China LobbyAs James Bradley makes clear in The

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageAn aggravating if valuable book Bradley has improved since Imperial Cruise but his continuing grudge against the Roosevelt family colours and weakens the narrative he is presenting This is not to excuse the narrow minded arrogant and feckless policies the two administrations could produce on China they were legion A laudable focus in later chapters on the expelled China Hands especially Service and Stilwell A trove of further reading suggestions and some very good

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageComing in I wanted to really like this book I was unsuccessfulThe China Mirage get used to that term Bradley uses it a lot is pretty close to a screed Bradley documents US fascination with China and implies that if not for that World War II with Japan would not have been fought Never mind that the Japanese had drawn up plans to fight the US which they found necessary back in the 30sThis book is about the opening of China and how it was a ruse and disastrous and that nothing good came of it The US was deluded Bradley says but its intent to

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageI've long placed Chiang Kai Shek along with Mao and Cixi as the incompetent triumvirate that made China the mess it is today; I've also long been confounded by Taiwanese and Americans who fail to recognize Chiang for the damn fool he was After reading this book that disconnect finally makes sense This book also helps me realize I'm not simply a grump for thinking most US China Watchers are charlatans and most DC politicians making China decisions are clueless in fact that has been the sad reality of US China relations since the Opium Wars and will probably get us into trouble again real soon This is a must read for aspiring China Hands or anyone who fancies themselves a China Expert if only for the humbling and cautionary value

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageThe glowing reviews aside this is a somewhat shallow book Worthy of note though is the importance and relative inaccessibility for readers of Opium Wars and Russo Japanese and First Sion Japanese War The Boxer Rebellion is published Yes Delano family got its money from opium trade Liuor guns slaves tobacco shady land deals and luxury egret feathers whalebone and fur are behind a bunch of aristocratic American families If you are shocked you need to read a little outside the textbooks and puff pieces

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageI was fascinated by the author's observation that every US failure of policy in China the Pacific or Asia was rooted in the Harvard educated advisor sitting at the presidents elbow That's uite a track record Still this book is replete with so many historical errors that I have to uestion either veracity of the author's research or his intellectual integrity He completely misunderstands the sources of the Korean War mischaracterizing it as a small local civil war The record of discussion between Kim Stalin and Mao is fairly detailed and complete on this point yet absent in his analysis His conjecture that war with Japan could hav

    Doc â The China Mirage ¹ HardcoverDownload ↠ James d bradley The China MirageWow This book opened my eyes to the fact that WW2 in the Pacific was created by the ignorance of the FDR administration and lobbying by the China Lobby which was ironically funded by American China Aid dollars Due to that corruption we backed Chiang instead of befriending Mao And Korea and Vietnam followed Im not a communist sympathizer but it's clear we spent
