Praise for “The China Trilogy”



“Jeff J. Brown’s dispatches are a bracing antidote to the western media’s groupthink on China.”

— John Pilger (http://johnpilger.com/), Emmy (http://johnpilger.com/videos/cambodia-the-betrayal) and BAFTA (https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0683400/awards) Award winning film director.




“Few voices can match Jeff J Brown when it comes to explaining China to foreigners, especially Americans, their minds still very much imprisoned by their own country’s gargantuan propaganda machine. An Okie by birth, Brown, a longtime resident of China, and a spellbinding narrator, is an inspiring example of personal transformation, from firm believer in America’s exceptionalist religion, to authoritative critic of its policies and multitude of self-serving myths. His China trilogy is simply indispensable to fully understand the re-emergence of this great nation, whose values represent an auspicious turning point for humanity.”


— Patrice Greanville, Editor, The Greanville Post (www.greanvillepost.com)






“Jeff J. Brown’s amazing trilogy about China is a must read for anyone wanting to learn something about the true China. It is very different from the China described by the mainstream media and by Western politicians. BIG Red Book on China is particularly useful as a reference for understanding modern Chinese society.”


— Peter Man (https://stone-man.weebly.com), author of The Unconquered: Children of the Divine Fire (https://www.amazon.com/Unconquered-Children-Divine-Romance-Kingdom-ebook/dp/B07NYZS48F)


“Jeff has done a great job in countering the unrelenting lies and hatred against China (20% of humanity) by the agenda-based presstitudes. His work is VERY IMPORTANT for the survival of humanity in the 21st century.

If the learning of history is of any benefit  to humanity, I hope that the warmonger elitists in the West would realise that the rise and fall of a civilisation is an inevitable process: the Roman Empire did not last forever, the Crusaders were unable to hold on to Jerusalem, Spain was unable to prevent the rise of Britain, and Britain was unable to prevent the independence of America.

21st century is a nuclear weaponries century, it is a century for cooperation, not confrontation. The war on the Korea peninsula, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan already proven that, the combination of the world’s richest countries and advanced military forces failed to crash the will of the weaker people they oppressed. With the help of technology, all weaponries are lethal including those that are belted around the human body.

The world has to learn to work towards similarity and accept each other’s differences. The behaviour of the crusaders and the colonial masters is no longer workable and acceptable in the 21st century. All nations should learn to trade with each other for raw materials, finished products and services in a fair and mutually beneficial way – not bombs, missiles and economic sanctions. No single nation can solve the problem of global warming without the cooperation of the others. Military aggression did not make the West any safer.”

— Wei Ling Chua (http://outcastjournalist.com), author of Democracy: What the West can learn from China (http://outcastjournalist.com/index_files/democracy_what_the_west_can_learn_from_China.htm) and Tiananmen Square “Massacre”? The Power of Words v Silent Evidence (http://outcastjournalist.com/index_files/tiananmen_square_massacre_power_of_words_vs_silent_evidence.htm)




“BIG Red Book on China”





“Of the three books in Jeff J. Brown’s BIG Red Book on China  is my favorite. I give it to curious (even hostile) friends secure in the knowledge that they’ll learn enough about China’s history, geography, politics, governance, art and society to see through the nonsense we read every day in our media.  BIG Red Book on China is solace for the socialist soul in time of need and a bracing defense of a country that is resuming world leadership after a – by its standards – brief break of two hundred years. Highly recommended, dammit!”

— Godfree Roberts, author of HOW CHINA WORKS – And Why It’s Winning (http://howchinaworks.org)





“China is serious business…. Thankfully, today we can finally access authors like Jeff J. Brown, who have compiled superb, comprehensive scholarship to allow today’s readers to grant China the seriousness and honesty it deserves. And the John K. Fairbank’s of the Western world are everywhere else…providing copy and rubber-stamping diplomas.”

— Ramin Mazaheri (https://thesaker.is/tag/ramin-mazaheri/), chief correspondent in Paris for PressTV (http://www.presstv.com/)





“Jeff J. Brown has done a masterful job, creating a highly readable, marvelously engaging, truly exciting opus, at the same time maintaining the highest level of scholarship. Much of what the reader will discover here will be uncomfortable, most of it will be unfamiliar. Thanks to the Western disinformation machine of the U.S. Deep State with full complicity of corporate media the national conversation is saturated with malignant, vitriolic propaganda, the truth nowhere to be found. So … if you are fed up with self-serving lies of the capitalist neoliberal establishment and looking for a reality-based, factually-objective, thoroughly-researched, unassailably accurate portrayal of China, and the prospects it offers humankind for not just surviving the current raft of existential challenges, but for a world built on cooperation, mutual trust, and reciprocal advantage, there is no comparable work available today. Read BIG Red Book on China, then keep it handy. It will be one of your most valuable reference books for many years to come.”

— John Rachel (https://jdrachel.com), author of The Peace Dividend (https://jdrachel.com/books/) and An Unlikely Truth (https://jdrachel.com/an-unlikely-truth/)





“Jeff Brown has written a gorgeous text. His prose is lucid, clear, humane and approachable. He writes with the conviction of a convert and the generosity of a saint, though he does not pull punches. He attacks the vicious propaganda lies that have enveloped modern China since its founding in 1949 and beyond, taking his reader back to ancient times to assess the modern day import of Confucianism, the Silk Roads, and the Heavenly Mandate. This book is a primer on many fronts, including Chinese governance, philosophy, history and art. Yet it is also a courageous telling of the author’s own decoupling from the very lies of which he has the proper grace and temerity to forewarn his reader. For those who find themselves irritated and downright suspicious of the bulk of Western treatments of China, BIG Red Book on China is the veritable push-off point for understanding China in the English language–from a chastened English-language speaker to boot.”

— Dr. Amir Khan, Associate Professor of English, Dalian Maritime University; Managing editor, Conversations: The Journal of Cavellian Studies; Author, Comedies of Nihilism





“China Is Communist Dammit – Dawn of the Red Dynasty is perhaps the best book written about this country in years. Jeff Brown produced a masterpiece, and many more will undoubtedly follow!”


     — Andre Vltchek (http://andrevltchek.weebly.com/), author of  “Aurora” (https://www.amazon.com/Aurora-Andre-Vltchek/dp/6027354364/) and “Exposing Lies Of The Empire” (https://www.amazon.com/Exposing-Lies-Empire-Andre-Vltchek/dp/6027005866).




“China Rising – Capitalist Roads, Socialist Destinations”





“I just finished Jeff J. Brown’s insightful book, ‘China Rising’. I found it fluid and forthright . .  . Bravo!”

— James Bradley (http://www.jamesbradley.com/), author of “The China Mirage” (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-china-mirage-james-bradley/1118620112?ean=9780316196666#/) and “Flags of Our Fathers” (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/flags-of-our-fathers-james-bradley/1100303084?ean=9780553384154#/).




Sooner or later, certainly while you are deep into this book, say when you reach the part that explains what makes Xi Jinping run, you gotta ask yourself a question: why should I rely on a gaggle of pompous, redundant, ideologically impaired U.S. scholars self-billed as China ‘experts’, when I can get my Sino-kicks with Jeff?”

  — Pepe Escobar (http://www.atimes.com/writer/pepe-escobar/), author of “2030” (https://www.amazon.com/2030-Pepe-Escobar/dp/1608880354) and “Empire of Chaos” (https://www.amazon.com/Empire-Chaos-Pepe-Escobar/dp/1608881644)





“44 Days Backpacking in China- The Middle Kingdom in the 21st Century, with the United States, Europe and the Fate of the World in Its Looking Glass”





“What if Alexis de Tocqueville were fluent in Mandarin and traveling through China by backpack and bullet train? Oklahoma’s latter-day Tocqueville, Jeff J. Brown, is one heck of a good story teller, and traveling with him deep into China is an adventure not to be missed.”

— Thomas A. Bass (http://www.thomasbass.com/), author of “The Spy Who Loved Us” (http://www.thomasbass.com/the_spy_who_loved_us_78725.htm) and “Vietnamerica-The War Comes Home” (http://www.thomasbass.com/vietnamerica__the_war_comes_home_1258.htm).




“44 Days is a delightful romp through a changing China and Jeff J. Brown is an excellent guide.”

— John Pomfret (http://www.johnpomfret.org/), author of “Chinese Lessons: Five Classmates and the Story of the New China” (http://www.johnpomfret.org/chinese-lessons/) and “The Beautiful Country and The Middle Kingdom” (http://www.johnpomfret.org/the-book).




“Reading 44 Days is like taking a trip through China with a very funny and articulate friend. This is entertainment. 44 Days is worth its weight in gold based sheerly on comedic value. However, the book has a far more reaching purpose. It’s an honorary degree in International Studies. 44 Days should be taught in high school social studies classes.”

— Prairie Boulmier-Darden, International Educator-Director





“44 Days is an entertaining tale told by someone with a good eye for the absurd, a sense of history and the ability to appreciate a journey’s simple pleasures.”

— William Kazer, Wall Street Journal





“I could feel the heat of the desert, the toxic air of large, congested cities and the crisp brilliance of a sunny day high on a glacier. Jeff Brown is an intelligent, articulate and entertaining writer and 44 Days is absolutely fascinating. I highly recommend it.”

— Mick Winter, author of Cuba for the Misinformed: Facts from the Forbidden Island (https://www.amazon.com/dp/0965900096/) and Peak Oil Prep: Prepare for Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Collapse (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0965900045/)



“Jeff discovers himself and ponders refreshing perspectives on the human condition. 44 Days is a terrific read for thinkers, travelers and otherwise.”


— Deena Stryker, author of Lunch with Fellini, Dinner with Fidel (https://www.amazon.com/Lunch-Fellini-Dinner-Fidel-Illustrated/dp/1479103217/) and A Taoist Politics: The Case for Sacredness (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1419676059/)
