Claws of the Panda tells the story of Ottawa's failure to recognize and confront the efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to infiltrate and influence Canadian politics, academia, and media, and to exert control over Canadians of Chinese heritage. Jonathan Manthorpe gives a detailed description of the CCP's campaign to embed agents of influence in Canadian business, politics, media and academia. The book traces the evolution of the Canada-China relationship over nearly 150 years, revealing how Canadian leaders have constantly misjudged the reality and potential of the relationship, while the CCP and its agents have benefited from Canadian naiveté.

“After reading this book you’ll be a lot better informed about whether the claws of the panda are sinking deeper and deeper into our society. … a bow in admiration to Jonathan Manthorpe for the diligent research, perseverance, and more than a little bravery that has gone into this exemplary study.”
