Claws of the Panda tells the story of Ottawa's failure to recognize and confront the efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to infiltrate and influence Canadian politics, academia, and media, and to exert control over Canadians of Chinese heritage. Jonathan Manthorpe gives a detailed description of the CCP's campaign to embed agents of influence in Canadian business, politics, media and academia. The book traces the evolution of the Canada-China relationship over nearly 150 years, revealing how Canadian leaders have constantly misjudged the reality and potential of the relationship, while the CCP and its agents have benefited from Canadian naiveté.

Quill & Quire
"Claws of the Panda fills an important need."
Vancouver Sun
"A sweeping and authoritative book on how China has spied on Canada, infiltrated businesses, stolen government secrets and harassed Canadian-Chinese citizens for decades."
