China’s influence around the globe is vast. Yet undertakings such as the Belt and Road initiative underscore that China, unlike the former Soviet Union, is more determined to sell its economic and financial capabilities to other nations than its political ideology. In this instructive essay, professor Thomas J. Christensen draws strong distinctions between current US–China tensions and the post-World War II era to warn the United States against employing a cold war mind-set in today’s geopolitical environment. Christensen’s nonpartisan take is required reading for all students of geopolitics.
