Description:
  Peaceful rise or potential threat? China's 21st century emergence as a global superpower affects every single one of us.

China’s unprecedented growth has placed it on the verge of overtaking the United States as the world’s preeminent power. Meanwhile, Chalmers Johnson, author of 'Blowback' and 'The Sorrows of Empire', argues that America’s preoccupation with militarism has all but sealed its fate as a nation in long-term decline. But if China surpasses the United States, what type of power will it become? In today’s interconnected and globalized world, the answer effects each and every one of us. In Pakistan and Afghanistan, China’s humanitarian activities and investment in infrastructure have won it the hearts and minds of the people. Yet in Tibet and Xinjiang, China is reviled as an imperialistic abuser of human rights.

Whether it’s a peaceful rise or potential threat, China's 21st century emergence as a great world power will change the lives of everyone.
