Taking lessons from a historical pattern called “Thucydides’ Trap,” where political scientist Graham Allison shows why a rising China and a dominant United States could be headed towards a violent collision no one wants — and how we can summon the common sense and courage to avoid it. 2. Are China and the US Doomed to Conflict? This talk is presented by the former prime minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd is also a longtime student of China, with a unique vantage point to watch its power rise in the past few decades.
