In How China Loses: The Pushback against Chinese Global Ambitions (Oxford University Press, 2021), Luke Patey argues that China’s predatory economic agenda, headstrong diplomacy, and military expansion undermine its ambitions to dominate the global economy and world affairs.

He shows that countries around the world — rich and poor, big and small — are pushing back and recognizing that engaging China produces new strategic vulnerabilities to their independence and competitiveness.
