Professor Mearsheimer will examine the current and future trends of China's economic and military modernization, based on his theory of offensive realism. He argues that if China's power continues to grow over the next few decades, it would attempt to establish control over East Asia as its own sphere of influence, leading to a conflict with the United States.
