What if, after all the talk of capitalist free markets bringing open, free democracy to China, it doesn't happen? What if instead it remains an unyielding Leninist system unwilling to stop its abuse of human rights and hold free elections? James Mann follows this provocative line of thought in his newest book.

His ideas are indeed provocative but fall in the face of the ongoing efforts of Chinese leaders to ingratiate themselves with African nations in their efforts to gain access to much needed natural resources.

To be on an international playing field increasingly requires playing by international and therefore democratic rules.
