Book cover of The Digital Silk Road: China's Quest to Wire the World and Win the Future by Jonathan E. Hillmanby Jonathan E. Hillman

An expert on China’s global infrastructure expansion provides an urgent look at the battle to connect and control tomorrow’s networks.

From the ocean floor to outer space, China’s Digital Silk Road aims to wire the world and rewrite the global order. Taking readers on a journey inside China’s surveillance state, rural America, and Africa’s megacities, Jonathan Hillman reveals what China’s expanding digital footprint looks like on the ground and explores the economic and strategic consequences of a future in which all routers lead to Beijing.

If China becomes the world’s chief network operator, it could reap a commercial and strategic windfall, including many advantages currently enjoyed by the United States.
