Upcoming: Livestreaming Joseph Nye‘s new Book Release
And Nye's dialogue with Henry Huiyao Wang on "Soft Power and Great-Power Competition: Shifting Sands in the Balance of Power between the United States and China"
Joseph Nye’s new book, Soft Power and Great-Power Competition: Shifting Sands in the Balance of Power between the United States and China, was recently published. In this book, he repeatedly emphasizes that China and the United States do not pose a threat to each other's survival. On the contrary, both countries can benefit from cooperation. While some level of great power competition is inevitable, the best thing to do is to manage this competition and establish a competitive-cooperative relationship. Ultimately, cooperation in response to transnational challenges can be a positive-sum game.
On Friday, April 28th, the Center for China and Globalization (CCG) will co-host a book launch event with CITIC Press, Springer-Nature during which Dr. Nye, the publishers, and Henry Huiyao Wang will discuss this new important publication.

· Can Sino-US relations break free from the traditional geopolitical competition and transcend the “Cold War”?
· China and the US relationship can be “cooperative rivalry”, what role will “soft power” play in the relationship?
· After four cycles of Sino-US relations, how should we view the current “20-year cycle” and what experiences and lessons can be learned from each cycle? How can we extend the length of the “friendly cycle” and shorten the “adverse cycle”?
