Editorial Reviews


"This book represents Thomas Mahnken's ambitious endeavor to initiate a serious dialogue regarding America's long-term competition with China . . . Mahnken is to be applauded for his enthusiastic treatment of the subject matter, his herculean effort to bring together the works of so many experts, and providing a platform from which further discussions may take root. Undeniably, the author has identified an area of academic study that desperately needs additional exploration―coherent strategies for future Sino-American competition." -- Thomas Bodine ― U. S. Naval Institute Proceedings

"This volume is a must-read for those concerned about the appropriate national security strategy for the United States to pursue as it extricates itself from the failed attempts to reengineer societies in Iraq and Afghanistan and confronts massive budget deficits." -- Lawrence Korb ―
Senior Fellow Center for American Progress

"This book makes an enormous contribution to the strategic studies literature. It is mandatory reading for anyone interested in grand strategy, the end of the Cold War, the emergence of China as a great power, and the influence of the Pentagon's legendary Andrew Marshall on the study of strategy." -- Ambassador Eric S. Edelman, Distinguished Fellow ―
the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

About the Author

Thomas G. Mahnken is Jerome E. Levy Chair of Economic Geography and National Security at the U.S. Naval War College and a Visiting Scholar at the Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins University.
