Contest Of The Century: The New Era of Competition with China

Author(s): Geoff Dyer [No relation]


Description: By sea and on the airwaves, by dollar and yuan, a contest has begun that will shape the next century. China's rise has now entered a critical new phase, as it seeks to translate its considerable economic heft into a larger role on the world stage, challenging American supremacy. Yet he also shows why China may struggle to unseat the West - its ambitious designs are provoking anxiety, especially in Asia, while America's global alliances have deep roots. If Washington can adjust to a world in which it is not the sole dominant power, it may be able to retain its ability to set the global agenda.




Author Biography: Geoff Dyer is an award-winning journalist and the FT's former Beijing bureau chief. Now in the Washington DC bureau, he writes about American foreign policy. A former Fulbright scholar, he studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge University and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
