The US-China relationship is now defined by "strategic competition." In Cold Rivals, a distinguished group of scholars from the United States and China examine the reasons for this deterioration and its implications for world politics.
The two countries are now competitors locked in a long-term rivalry, but how volatile this rivalry will become is still to be determined. The book explores not only the historical roots and contemporary foreign policy aspects of this era, but also looks at the economic, military, and technological arenas of US-China strategic competition. In doing so, this volume highlights important differences in US and Chinese perspectives. A final section of the volume explores future scenarios for this relationship from a variety of perspectives, all coming to a sobering conclusion.
This policy-relevant book provides a comprehensive overview of US-China strategic competition and reinvigorates thinking about how to avoid reaching a crisis point.
"Medeiros has produced a superb and timely volume that brings together leading scholars from both countries to probe the depth and dimensions of competition between the United States and China. Anyone interested in the trajectory of this critical relationship should read this book." ? M. Taylor Fravel, director, Security Studies Program, Massachusetts Institute of Technology,

"With an all-star assemblage of scholars and former practitioners of US-China relations from both countries, Cold Rivals delivers a wealth of unique and must-read insights on the how, what, and why of intensifying strategic competition between the two powers and foreshadows even greater contestation and possibly conflict in the years to come." ?
