It was great pleasure to bring Michael Beckley into the Virtual Studio to discuss US-China tensions and rivalry and the consequences of these tensions for the evolving global order. Michael has written a dynamic series of articles in Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy concerned with the US, China, and US-China relations. Michael has examined the threat, or not, of Xi Jinping’s China as well assessing what a more aggressive China means for the United States, especially its military posture and strategy in the key strategic flashpoints from the Taiwan Straits, the South China Sea and elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific. Some come join us in the Virtual Studio.
Michael Beckley is the Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where his research focuses on US-China competition, long-term trends in the US-China power balance, US alliances and grand strategy, and US economic and defense policy in East Asia. Concurrently, he is an Associate Professor at Tufts University. Michael is the author of Unrivaled: Why America Will Remain the World’s Sole Superpower (Cornell University Press, 2018).
