In Destined for War, the eminent Harvard scholar 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. Yet, stressing that war is not inevitable, Allison also reveals how clashing powers have kept the peace in the past — and what painful steps the United States and China must take to avoid disaster today.
The Project on Saudi and Gulf Cooperation Council Security focuses on national and regional security issues in the Gulf. Made possible through a gift from HRH Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, the Project uses research, reports, events, and a speaker series to explore and present ideas and recommendations for the United States and allies/partners in the Saudi/GCC region so they can work more effectively together to maintain security and stability.
The project gathers insights and understanding from current and former national security practitioners from the United States and from the region such as ambassadors from the Gulf States and Gulf State military experts.
