The Sino-American Century
"Are we overestimating China’s superpower strength?" asks E. Wayne Merry, a former U.S. State Department and Pentagon official — Paper Dragon. His conclusion:
- This century will likely be defined by the relationship between the world’s oldest great nation and its youngest. China and America are very different and we face different challenges. We are both great nations, great states and great powers. We will become adversaries only by choice and blunder, not by inevitability.
