In a lucid and important book, Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’ Trap? Graham Allison reaches back to Thucydides to tell the story of the conflict between rising powers and those that have already risen and asks if China and the United States are destined to fall into Thucydides’ Trap. Learning from the past to better manage the future, Allison provides a compelling analysis of the pitfalls that both must avoid as China re-emerges as a great power.
