It’s been forty years since the United States and China established formal diplomatic ties.
During that time, China has transformed itself from an impoverished country to the world’s second-largest economy. China now plays an increasing role in international affairs and has ambitious plans for the future in technology innovation, space exploration and renewable energy.
But do those ambitions and the rise of China put it on a collision course with the United States? That’s the question tonight’s guest explores in his book, “Destined for War: Can America and China escape Thucydides’s Trap?”
