The China Choice - Why We Should Share Power by Hugh White

'The China Choice - Why We Should Share Power by Hugh White'
Hugh White is Professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University’s Strategic and Defence Studies Centre. Since the 1980s he has played a major part in debating, developing, and implementing foreign and defence policy, including a period as Deputy Secretary for Strategy and Intelligence in Australia’s Department of Defence, and he was the principal author of the country’s 2000 Defence White Paper. Over the past decade he has become a leading figure in public debates about defence and foreign policy in the Asia-Pacific region. 2 China is rising. But how should the West—and the United States in particular—respond? This could be the key geopolitical question of the 21st century, according to strategic expert Hugh White, with huge implications for the future security and prosperity of the West as a whole. The China Choice confronts this fundamental question, considering the options for the Asian Century ahead. As China’s economy grows to become the world’s largest, the US has three choices: it can compete, share power, or concede leadership in Asia. The choice is momentous—as significant for the future as any the US has ever faced. China is already more formidable than any country the US has faced before—and if America does not want to find itself facing China as an enemy, it must accept it as an equal partner. Weighing the huge difficulties of accepting China as an equal with the immense cost and risks of making it an enemy, in the end the choice is simple, even if it is not easy. The US simply must share power with China in Asia. The alternative is too terrible to contemplate. How should the West— and the US in particular— respond to the inexorable rise of China? This question promises to be the key geopolitical question of the 21st century—one which will have momentous consequences for us all. This urgent intervention in the China debate provides a blueprint for a peaceful future and is essential reading for all those interested in modern China, 21st century world politics, and the future of the West. ‘Thoughtful, thought-provoking and highly readable.’ J. Stapleton Roy, director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, and former US ambassador to China ‘Erudition and a first-rate intellect, without the baggage of prejudice—a must-read.’ Bob Hawke, prime minister of Australia 1983–91 ‘The finest synthesis to date of all the major questions facing East Asia . . . a provocative work imbued with intellectual integrity.’ Robert D. Kaplan, chief geopolitical analyst for Stratfor and author of Monsoon and The Revenge of Geography 9 780199 684717 ISBN 978-0-19-968471-7 1 the £16.99 RRP $24.95 USA hugh white THE CHINA CHOICE Author photograph: © Charlie White Jacket photograph: © Joseph Sohm/Visions of America/Corbis; flags: © Shutterstock.com/ ArtisticPhoto.
