Global coexistence with the rise of China is the most pressing strategic challenge of the current era. Failure by both China and the United States, the two great powers in East Asia, to manage China’s rise has the potential to destabilize not only East Asia but also global politics. This is especially the case because East Asian politics affects the vital interests of China and the United States and because East Asia is the world’s most dynamic and important economic region. US and Chinese inability to manage China’s rise and their bilateral strategic relationship also has the potential to lead to heightened regional instability, including trade wars, arms races, crises, and great-power war.
