Summary: For much of the past 2000 years history has demonstrated that whenever an established ‘superpower’ is confronted with the challenge of a newly ascendant ‘rival’ power, almost inevitably the outcome was conflict and war. But with China’s extraordinary rise during the past 25 years the world has witnessed a newly emergent superpower; an economic colossus fully capable of challenging and even eclipsing the US in the years ahead. The fundamental questions posed in Better Angels are deceptively simple; ‘How should the US react to a newly ascendant China?’ And ‘Is it possible that the 21st Century could witness the very first time in history that two competing superpowers, each pursuing its own agenda of self-interest, might peacefully co-exist?’ Can we imagine a future in which the US & China overcome their economic rivalries, ideological challenges and cultural differences in favor of a historic accord that could underwrite an era of peace and prosperity in the wider world?
