Daniel Kliman Book Launch: "Fateful Transitions"
Daniel Kliman’s new book Fateful Transitions: How Democracies Manage Rising Powers, from the Eve of World War I to China's Ascendance receives praise and commentary from the Asia expert community. Fateful Transitions offers a new perspective on the debate about China's ascendance and the global power shift. The book examines how democratic nations have navigated the rise of other states from 1895 to the present and explains what today's leaders can learn from history.
"This is an important book leveraging history to understand the problem of declining U.S. hegemony and a rising China. With its lucid writing style and accessible approach, Fateful Transitions should have wide appeal for scholars, students, and policymakers. It may well be the best book on relations among the great powers in the coming global transition."—Bruce Russett, Yale University
