Atlantic Exchange
Featuring Graham Allison
and Jeffrey Goldberg

Washington, DC

China and the United States are playing a game straight from the history books. When a dominant world power is threatened by a rising country, more times than not the outcome is war.  But even with a growing trade battle and a belligerent North Korea on the border, war is not an inevitable outcome.

Graham Allison, Director of Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and author of Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’s Trap?, joined The Atlantic’s Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg to explore the US-China relationship and see how war in East Asia can be avoided.
