Yellow Peril (Chinese: 黃禍; pinyin: Huáng Huò) is a 1991 novel by Wang Lixiong,[1] written in Chinese under the pseudonym Bao Mi (lit. "Secret"), about a civil war in the People's Republic of China that becomes a nuclear exchange and soon engulfs the world, causing World War III. It is notable for Wang Lixiong's politics, a Chinese dissident and outspoken activist, its publication following Tiananmen Square protests of 1989,[2] and its popularity due to bootleg distribution across China even when the book was banned by the Communist Party of China.

The book was published in 1991 by Mirror Books, a Chinese editor in Toronto, Canada,[3] and soon became a best-seller.[4][dead link]
