In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the White House Fellows, Major General Bernard "Burn" Loeffke (USA, Ret.), Distinguished Graduate of West Point and former White House Fellow, relates his vast experiences, both past and present, within the Peoples Republic of China. A military man and active proponent of peaceful relations between the U.S. and China, in "China, Our Enemy?" General Loeffke (the Chinese pronounce it "love-key") shares stories of differences and commonalities, perceptions from both sides, as well as lessons learned in the course of the past 40 years. With the largest population on the planet, and an ever-expanding economy, China's place on the world stage cannot be ignored. This very personal and up-close look provides valuable insights for the novice and expert alike.
