THE CHINA FANTASY How Our Leaders Explain Away Chinese Repression

by | Read by Jeff Riggenbach

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Once a journalist living in China, the author changes his point of reference to describe China as the outside world sees it. For example, he explores how we ignore China’s political repression and one-party system in our zeal to trade with her. Narrator Jeff Riggenbach’s deep voice reads the material straight from the page. His “no frills” style and perfect diction never drop or mispronounce a word, allowing listeners to concentrate on the information. What little Chinese he must pronounce—the names of leaders and large cities—gives him no pause and is of minor importance. Readers will learn hardly anything about China itself but will hear many ideas about how a totalitarian state thrives in an increasingly globalized economy.
