Bill Holstein, a past president and long-time governor of the OPC, writes in his latest book that the scale of the challenge that China represents is much greater than even some experts have recognized. Join Holstein for a Book Night at Club Quarters to examine how China’s government is orchestrating a massive campaign to steal American technology inside the United States through cyber hacking as well as recruitment of Chinese and Chinese-Americans working inside U.S. companies and institutions. His book outlines how different arms of the Chinese government have stolen hundreds of millions of pieces of data about Americans. In short, the struggle to maintain American leadership in the world thus must begin at home.

Holstein started covering China’s modernization efforts 40 years ago after United Press International transferred him to Hong Kong. He won an OPC award for best foreign economic reporting for that coverage and was promoted to Beijing bureau chief. He has remained involved in coverage over the years for BusinessWeek, U.S. News & World Report and Chief Executive magazine. He edited a book based on an OPC China Hands reunion in 2014 entitled, Has the American Media Misjudged China?

Books will be available for purchase at the event for cash or checks only.
