Stefan Baron (former Head Editor of the German weekly, WirtschaftsWoche) analyses the struggle for hegemony between the USA and China.
"Ami go home"? That is not the sort of title one would expect to see on a book by an author like Stefan Baron. Baron, an economics graduate - who in the course of his professional career has worked as financial correspondent for "Der Spiegel," Editor-in-Chief of the "WirtschaftsWoche" and most recently, as the Director of Global Communication for the Deutsche Bank - certainly would not want his book to be considered anti-American. In his book, the publicist, who for years had been a member of the Board of Trustees of the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies and who still enjoys good relations with the United States, focuses his attention on the major shift in the global balance of power, shaping our present, with China's rise and the USA seeking to hold the People's Republic of China down, to preserve its global dominance. The consequences are a dangerous escalation of the conflict, which could lead to a Third World War, which as Baron notes, which must urgently be prevented. This concern leads him to harshly criticize the United States' current situation and to suggest ways of preventing the escalation of the transpacific power struggle. Read more
