Praise for Breakdown:

"Bill Gertz has written a first-rate analysis of the most serious problem to confront the nation since the Cold War, and it reads like a thriller. You won't be able to put it down. But when you do, send it to your congressman or senator."
-- Richard Perle, Fellow, American Enterprise Institute, and former Assistant Secretary of Defense.

"A deeply disturbing account of how America's intelligence agencies failed to discern the elaborate plots of Osama bin Laden's men were planning against us. Exciting. Upsetting. Strongly recommended."
-- Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, Leavey Professor of Government, Georgetown University, and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

"Bill Gertz, one of America's most accomplished and credible investigative reporters, offers a compelling analysis of our nation's intelligence problems, including their historical roots, and provides a comprehensive prescription for correcting the deficiencies and improving national security."
-- Edwin Meese III, former Attorney General of the United States.

"A great read."
-- John McLaughlin, host, "One on One"

Washington Times book review by Steven Mosher

Wire stories about 'The China Threat'

Reviews:

"There is no Churchill in America today. Where are they to turn then, those patriots in our security services who understand what the fecklessness, stupidity and corruption of the Clinton administration are costing us? It would not be very surprising if they were to seek out a sympathetic journalist, in the slim hope that the American public might take their eyes away from Hollywood and Wall Street long enough to pay attention. If so, their contact of choice would be Bill Gertz, defense reporter for the Washington Times."
-- John Derbyshire, National Review, Dec. 4, 2000

"The China Threat is especially strong in piecing together the larger pattern of modernization in the Chinese military and the looming U.S.-China confrontation over Taiwan."
-- Tom Donnelly, The Weekly Standard, Dec. 4, 2000

"Sheer fabrication out of ulterior motives, with which we express our strong dissatisfaction. It must be pointed out that there are always some people in the United States who cling to the Cold War mentality and have prejudice of and hostility against China... We demand those who have plotted the so-called 'China Spy Case' see clearly the trend of history and immediately stop their despicable acts of wantonly attacking China."
-- Sun Yuxi, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, People's Republic of China, Nov. 16, 2000

Praise for Betrayal
"This will be the Clinton administration's least favorite book on its foreign policy. But the rebuttals are likely to be long on adjectives and short on refutation, for these tough charges are backed, the Gertz way, by fact after fact after fact."
-- R. James Woolsey, former CIA Director

"Mr. Gertz has performed a signal service by writing this thorough, frightening, and sad chronicle of how we fell from our ability to provide leadership in the quest for peace without appeasement."
-- The Honorable Caspar Weinberger, former Secretary of Defense, Chairman of Forbes magazine

"I know of no national security reporter in the U.S. who is better sourced or more respected for accuracy than Bill Gertz. His reporting is essential reading for those who wish to stay in the know. An so is Betrayal."
-- James Webb, former Secretary of the Navy, author of Fields of Fire and The Emperor's General

"Sheer fabrication out of ulterior motives, with which we express our strong dissatisfaction. It must be pointed out that there are always some people in the United States who cling to the Cold War mentality and have prejudice of and hostility against China... We demand those who have plotted the so-called 'China Spy Case' see clearly the trend of history and immediately stop their despicable acts of wantonly attacking China."
-- Sun Yuxi, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, People's Republic of China, Nov. 16, 2000

Praise for Betrayal
"This will be the Clinton administration's least favorite book on its foreign policy. But the rebuttals are likely to be long on adjectives and short on refutation, for these tough charges are backed, the Gertz way, by fact after fact after fact."
-- R. James Woolsey, former CIA Director

"Mr. Gertz has performed a signal service by writing this thorough, frightening, and sad chronicle of how we fell from our ability to provide leadership in the quest for peace without appeasement."
-- The Honorable Caspar Weinberger, former Secretary of Defense, Chairman of Forbes magazine

"I know of no national security reporter in the U.S. who is better sourced or more respected for accuracy than Bill Gertz. His reporting is essential reading for those who wish to stay in the know. An so is Betrayal."
-- James Webb, former Secretary of the Navy, author of Fields of Fire and The Emperor's General
