Peter Navarro is the author of If It’s Raining in Brazil, Buy Starbucks, as well as The Well-Timed Strategy: Managing the Business Cycle for Competitive Advantage; What the Best MBAs Know; When the Market Moves, Will You Be Ready?; and The Coming China Wars.  

His latest book, co-authored with Columbia Business School Dean Glenn Hubbard, is Seeds of Destruction. It explains what the U.S. economy has suffered from a decade of sluggishness and offers a “Seeds of Prosperity” policy blueprint to restore American prosperity. 

Professor Navarro’s work has appeared in Barron’s, Business Week, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Harvard Business Review, among other publications. He has frequently appeared on Bloomberg TV and radio, CNN, NPR, Marketplace, and all three major network news shows. He is a regular CNBC contributor and has appeared on 60 Minutes. 

Of “My Two Chinas,” Professor Navarro writes: 

“Over the years, I’ve watched many American pundits, corporate executives, and politicians kowtow to China on any number of issues – from China’s Internet censorship and theft of intellectual property to currency manipulation and attacks on the Pentagon.  These cowards should draw courage from the example of a man like Baiqiao Tang – who stood up for democracy and freedom in the belly of the Communist beast and, miraculously, has lived to tell us all about it.” 

– Peter Navarro, author of The Coming China Wars and Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Merage School of Business, University of California-Irvine 

My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” recounts my co-author Tang Baiqiao’s experiences as a student leader during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989; how he was subsequently hunted by the Chinese government and jailed for his pro-democracy activities; the physical and mental tortures he endured while in prison; his release, and eventual flight to the U.S.  

Despite living in exile these past 21 years, Tang Baiqiao has never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.  

“My Two Chinas” features a foreword by His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.   

Prof. Robert Thurman, noted expert on China and Tibet, will contribute an introduction.   

Jeff Widener, the world-renowned photojournalist and Pulitzer-finalist who took the iconic “Tank Man” photo has contributed a preface.
