Summary

China — Superpower or Basket Case? You decide!

A wide-eyed expat is detained by Beijing cops and told to sign a false confession. Will he make it out of China alive?

Narrated by the author, Dueling the Dragon is a great adventure story, but this one just happens to be true!

With a journalist's eye and lively wit, LeRoy exposes the deep levels of corruption tearing at China's social fabric. You will learn of college students sold into slavery, media suppression of pollution reports, and persecution of a broadcaster just trying to do his job!

Yet there is delight amid the despair, reverie amid the revulsion, as LeRoy encounters China's "raven-haired beauties". You'll laugh away the tears with this riveting memoir!

"An adventure, a memoir, and certainly one of the more entertaining books about China before us today."
