Description

The defining geopolitical contest of the 21st century is between China and the US. But is it avoidable? And if it happens, is the outcome already inevitable?

China and America are world powers without serious rivals. They eye each other warily across the Pacific; they communicate poorly; there seems little natural empathy. A massive geopolitical contest has begun.

America prizes freedom; China values freedom from chaos. America values strategic decisiveness; China values patience.America is becoming society of lasting inequality; China a meritocracy. America has abandoned multilateralism; China welcomes it.

Kishore Mahbubani, a diplomat and scholar with unrivalled access to policymakers in Beijing and Washington, has written the definitive guide to the deep fault lines in the relationship, a clear-eyed assessment of the risk of any confrontation, and a bracingly honest appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses, and superpower eccentricities, of the US and China.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Outstanding, timely, and prescient

Mahbubani’s book is topical and direct, pulling from his lens as a global citizen who has engaged firsthand with many ASEAN events and key stakeholders. The audio should be required listening for FOX News viewers seeking to move beyond Trump and conservative propaganda to cast China a villain as they flail to shift blame for disastrous rhetoric and horrific economic, trade and military policies since Reagan but accelerated during the calamity of Trump’s first 3 years in office, culminating in the COVID-19 debacle (“hoax”, “China virus”, “China lab-produced” - even as that was proven a lie by American scientists months ago, “China tariffs”, etc). Readers should also secure the current issue of “The Economist”, clearly impressed by Mahbubani’s work, with their cover story “Is China Winning?”. Will anxiously await further work by the author.

Great book marred by bad Chinese pronunciation

In a book about Sino-US relationships, I don’t think it’s too much to expect decent pronunciation for the few Chinese words scattered across the book. Otherwise a fantastic book. Great content from a seasoned diplomat.

The courage to accept critics

Fascinating review of the Western and Chinese civilizations' interfaces. Although quite bias to my taste, the author reveals an important up-to-date view on the two major civilizations. The book is raising the most important question of our times - will these two great civilizations will find the way to build a better future for us all… For those of you who find it hard to deal with critics on the Western Civilization as a whole and the USA specifically - do try harder, you need to read this book and pay attention more than others :)

Great Book ! Well Written !

The US must try to avoid fighting the big superpower war with China; and to accept the inevitability of the rise of China. Rather than aim to outmuscle history, the US better to be like water and avoid a war, a confrontation that the US cannot possibly afford to wage, but also cannot afford to lose. The US has accepted China at its worst. And it will have to appreciate China when at its best. A great book by Singapore's Permanent Representative to the UN.

One of the most important books of our time!

As someone who is increasingly concerned about US-China relations, I felt the need to check out this book and I'm glad that I did. China has it's own rich history separate from Western history. The author gives tons of details and context about Chinese history and how it applies to their behavior today. Overrall, I got the impression that the author is a little more critical of the US than China but he doesn't let China off the hook for their mistakes and behaviors which have contributed to the decline of US-China relations. He covers China's problems in detail. I think he was more critical of US policies only because Americans sometimes don't look in the mirror and face reality. We prefer to imagine the morally superior ideal of America more than the reality that America often doesn't live up to it's ideals. And that's what this book mainly is: a reality-check for American audiences. The author ultimately doesn't answer the question in the Book's title. He describes several different paths both the US and China may take in the future and emphasizes that conflict between the US and China is 'avoidable'. I highly recommend this book...

Ignores the long term Chinese strategy

The book is very interesting but acts as if the long term strategy to achieve hegemony doesn’t exist, making it come off as overtly sympathetic or intentionally misleading. It does have many good thoughts and ideas and is worth reading. (It effectively assumes their behavior will be the same as it was during their rise as when they reach their height, which is not a wise assumption to make.)

Valuable insight into Chinese and American culture

After listening to this book I now understand better when my Chinese wife tells me "you have to see China in context with its history and culture" after me bluntly criticising China. Kishore Mahbubani gives a very interesting and diplomatic view on most criticisms of Chinese policy. I highly recommend the book to everyone who wants to hear another very well researched and rational side to the western media coverage. You don't have to agree with everything the author concludes but I would bet many people will see American Chinese geopolitics differently after listening to this audio book.

Zu einseitig gegen die USA

Teilweise sehr gute Informationen, Analysen und Vorschläge. Ich hatte jedoch erwartet, dass der Autor zumindest genauso detailliert auf Probleme Chinas eingeht. Fehler die von China begannen werden, werden hier teilweise runtergespielt.
