Destined for War: A Conversation with Dr. Graham Allison

China and the United States are heading toward a war neither wants. The reason is Thucydides's Trap, a deadly pattern of structural stress that results when a rising power challenges a ruling one.

In Destined for War, Harvard Kennedy School's Dr. Graham Allison explains why Thucydides's Trap is the best lens for understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century. Through uncanny historical parallels and war scenarios, he shows how close we are to the unthinkable.

This luncheon event, presented in collaboration with the Army and Navy Club on Farragut Square, is by invitation only.
