This book provides the most complete and accurate assessment of the probability of conflict between the United States and the rising Asian superpower. Equally important, it lays out an in-depth analysis of the possible pathways to peace. Written like a geopolitical detective story, the narrative encourages reader interaction by starting each chapter with an intriguing question that often challenges conventional wisdom. Based on interviews with more than thirty top experts, the author highlights a number of disturbing facts about China's recent military buildup and the shifting balance of power in Asia: the Chinese are deploying game-changing 'carrier killer' ballistic missiles, some of America's supposed allies in Europe and Asia are selling highly lethal weapons systems to China in a perverse twist on globalization and on the U.S. side, debilitating cutbacks in the military budget send a message to the world that America is not serious about its 'pivot to Asia.' Accessible to readers from all walks of life, this multidisciplinary work blends geopolitics, economics, history, international relations, military doctrine and political science to provide a better understanding of one of the most vexing problems facing the world.
