This review is from: The Writing On The Wall: China And The West In The 21St Century (Hardcover)
This is an interesting and informative book, I agree with many of Will Hutton's conclusions. However, I'd only give this book one star for the simple reason that it doesn't do what it says on the tin.
China is not the heart of the book, Hutton spends several chapters talking about growing US protectionism, growing US earnings inequality, global warming, third world corruption, and many other topics that interest him personally. Indeed he's more animated and compelling on these topics than he is on China. So, a book that's well worth reading, but a book with a misleading title.

This is true. Half the book is actually on the US... misleading title.

The title of the book is "China and the West in the 21st Century", which would suggest that the West will be discussed at some point.
