‘We should never underestimate China,’ say authors of The Two Michaels, Blanchfield and Hampson
Mike Blanchfield and Fen Osler Hampson say they wrote The Two Michaels in part because they 'wanted to tie together the geopolitical threads of a much larger story about Canada, the United States, China, and the future of digital technologies and the quest by great powers to control the internet.'
