In his recent New York Times op-ed piece, “China’s Challenge at Sea,” political scientist Aaron L. Friedberg examined China’s growing military strength and how it threatens to displace the United States’ dominance in the region. While China is fueled by economic growth of nearly 10 percent a year, America’s fiscal woes are inhibiting the country’s ability to keep up with China’s growing influence. In this lecture, Professor Friedberg discusses how the 21st century will be shaped by the relationship between these two nations, the strategies each is employing to achieve its goals, and the escalating Sino-American struggle for geopolitical predominance.
