In this far-seeing novel, the nations of the near future come to 1984—and a world in crisis: For the United States, Wolf Manheim, survivor of Buchenwald, the president's chief national security advisor, disciple of Adlai Stevenson . . . For the Soviet Union, Georgi Arbatov, Kremlin man of letters, a lesser hawk playing a two-faced game . . . For the People's Republic of China, Hu Ziping, a diminutive man of giant powers, waiting, waiting ever so patiently to play his own final China Card.And surpassing them all—a woman of celebrity, using weapons more powerful than the world's arsenals. Set against the backdrops of Washington, Peking, Moscow and a top secret retreat for the nation's movers and shakers, The China Card is a riveting, prophetic novel of obsessive love and shocking international intrigue.
