Summary The U.S. today faces the most complex and challenging security environment in recent memory -- even as it deals with growing constraints on its ability to respond to threats. Its most consequential challenge is the rise of China, which increasingly has the capability to deny the U.S. access to areas of vital national interest and to undermine alliances that have underpinned regional stability for over half a century. Thus, the time is right for the U.S. to adopt a long-term strategy for dealing with China; one that includes but is not limited to military means, and that fully includes U.S. allies in the region
Notes "This volume grew out of a conference on 'Developing Competitive Strategies for the 21st Century,' which was held at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island in August 2010."
