Is China Buying the World
Martin Wolf, Financial Times
"Peter Nolan knows more about Chinese companies and their international competition than anyone else on earth, including in China."
"This new book joins the debate with breath-taking depth and width, probing the very heart of the global economic system that we currently live in."
LSE Politics Blog
"A balanced and very honest analysis."
"Another excellent product of Nolan's fruitful academic career. In spite of its brevity, this highly readable yet rigorous volume closely engages many essential issues that directly concern the future of the world's economic and political orders."
"This is a useful little book; not only for its assessment of China, but also for its résumé of the globalised West and indeed worth a look for that alone."
"A well-argued rebuttal of anti-Chinese xenophobia, full of remarkable statistics."
"A slim and agile study of the eponymous question, which primarily seeks to debunk the growing myth."
''This is an analysis which replaces rhetoric on Chinese companies with evidence''
"Nolan makes a convincing case against panic. Even China's vast sovereign wealth is small compared to the market capitalisation of the companies listed on the stock exchanges of the West."
The CA Magazine
"Nolan's slim factual volume is a model of clarity."
"An important perspective that challenges popular conceptions."
"If you want to learn about large companies, their role in the global economy and in China's rise, there is no better guide than Peter Nolan: his analyses are factual, measured and persuasive."
