"The book clarifies American misunderstandings and mistaken perceptions about China from various perspectives, including intellectual property, economic trade, the military, etc. The “post-truth about China” fabricated by some American scholars and media has harmed and is still harming China-US relations, and has had, and is still having, a gravely negative impact on the world situation. Therefore, to clear up confusion, eliminate the bad influence of “post-truth”, solemnly introduce “truth” to people who cherish the China-US friendship, and let the “truth” again become the golden standard for the smooth and healthy development of China-US relations, it should be the natural responsibilities and academic pursuit for real academics from China and abroad. And this is also the cause and consideration for the development of this book. The changes we are encountering in the world are unseen in a century. Changes create opportunities, but more often than not, they are accompanied by risks and challenges. A fair and reasonable dialogue between China and America and also the whole world is urgently needed, considering the increasingly absurd misunderstandings about China. Also, there are few books now that confront directly the mistaken perceptions about China and explain them to the worldwide researchers and readers. This book aims to help disperse the “post-truth” clouds in US’ China policy, and jointly make due contributions, as think tanks and scholars, to the smooth and healthy development of China-US relations." --Publisher's description.
