Description of Destined for War by Graham Allison PDF
The “Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’ Trap?” is a must read for anyone concerned about US-China relations, or peace. Graham Allison is the author of this book. This is an amazing book explains that China is fundamentally a peaceable country that regards war as the last resort of barbarians. Its stories are well-known and Allison tells them in interesting ways. For example, he explains that Germany’s desire to acquire much of the world dates from the late 1800s. Hitler did not originate the idea, but rather put it into action by attempting to wipe out the Soviet Union and repopulate it with Germans. That’s not relevant to China, but it is an interesting history in its own right.
This book is really about the rise of China. America is facing its first serious economic competitor since it overtook Britain in the 19th century. The US has also been the dominant power in Asia since 1945. It has fought in Korea and Vietnam and protected Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, and the sea lanes in the region. When President Xi became China’s leader in 2012, he announced that his aim was to make China great again. This has meant a more assertive China. Overall, the book is easy to read and very informative. What Allison makes clear is that we don’t have any good options. By 1905, Britain had no economic interests in the Western Hemisphere that it was prepared to fight over, apart from Canada. It may be different for the US in Asia. It, we choose to withdraw from Asia, it would raise fundamental questions about the global role of the US.
