It’s increasingly clear that the United States and Europe are in a “shadow war” with Russia and China. Thankfully, this new brand of conflict is less terrifying than the Cold War – no shots are fired, no nuclear holocaust looms. But the hostilities are real and the tensions are constant, journalist Jim Sciutto reports in this sobering dispatch. Sciutto, who works as a CNN anchor and chief national security correspondent, describes his trips to shadow-war zones in the South China Sea and the Arctic. This engagingly written overview offers yet another testimonial that leaders in Beijing and Moscow have little interest in Western-style democracy.
