Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win (2022)

That the Chinese government seeks to infiltrate American institutions is hardly surprising.​

What Peter Schweizer reveals for the first time in his highly anticipated book Red Handed is how presidential families, Silicon Valley gurus, Wall Street high rollers, Ivy League universities, even professional athletes—were all willing to sacrifice American strength and security on the altar of personal enrichment.

“In my quarter-century as an investigative journalist, this is the scariest investigation I’ve ever conducted.”   ~ Peter Schweizer

In Red Handed, the seven-time New York Times bestselling author presents his most alarming findings to date, revealing the secret deals wealthy Americans have cut to help China build its military, technological, and economic might.  Equally as astonishing, many of these elites quietly believe the Chinese dictatorial regime is superior to American democracy.

Schweizer and his team of forensic investigators and researchers at the Government Accountability Institute spent more than a year scouring troves of global corporate records and mountains of legal filings to expose the hidden transactions China’s enablers hoped would never see the light of day. And, as Schweizer’s past bombshells Profiles in CorruptionSecret Empires, and Clinton Cash have all made clear, there are bad actors on both ends of the political spectrum.

Exhaustively researched, crisply told, and chilling, Red Handed exposes the nexus of power between the Chinese government and the American elites who do its bidding.
