China vs America: 2021 [9781785906848]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

China's rise as a global superpower has completely reshaped the landscape of international politics. As the country's authoritarian regime becomes increasingly assertive on the world stage, the United States grows ever more hostile to its Asian rival.

Repressive moves by China in Xinjiang and Hong Kong, military activities in the South China Sea and Western measures against Chinese companies have only exacerbated tensions. While the great powers of East and West battle over hegemony, the world is being led inexorably towards a new Cold War. During his time as a Cabinet minister attending National Security Council meetings, Oliver Letwin realised that there was no agreement among Western politicians and academics on how to conduct a peaceful long-term relationship with China.

China vs America traces the contours of history, both ancient and modern, to explain how China has emerged as a challenger to American power in the twenty-first century and why this has created such uneasiness in the West.

In this robust and controversial assessment, Letwin argues that the international rules-based order is completely ill equipped to foster a positive relationship between China and the United States and that the global community must act now to correct the collision course these two behemoths are currently on before it's too late.

AUTHOR: From 2010 to 2016, Oliver Letwin served as Minister for Government Policy and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, chaired a range of Cabinet committees, acted as Minister for National Resilience and was a member of the National Security Council. He holds MA and PhD degrees from Cambridge University and is a visiting professor at the Policy Institute, King's College London, and the Department of Politics and International Relations at Reading University. He is a vice-president of the Great Britain-China Centre, a fellow of the Legatum Institute, a senior adviser to the Faraday Institution and to Teneo and a member of the advisory council of the Bennett Institute for Public Policy. He is the author of a number of books, including Apocalypse How? and Hearts and Minds. He has been a privy councillor since 2002 and was knighted in 2016.
