    Many scholars writing on the rise of China and its consequences for world politics in the twenty-first century attempt to ground their analyses in power transition theory.¹ This is not surprising, given the theory’s emphasis on international hierarchies, differential rates of economic development, power shifts, the transformation of the international order, and the violent or peaceful means. The book’s most relevant contribution is to question assumptions regarding the Power Transition Theory (PTT) in Asia, especially on the issue of US-China rivalry and the birth of a new regional order. This book starts from the idea that the rise of China is not going to significantly reduce American power in .

    China, the U.S., and the Power-Transition Theory By: Steve Chan China’s recent growth has called attention to the power-transition theory, which contends that the danger of a major war is the greatest when a rising dissatisfied challenger threatens to overtake a declining satisfied hegemon.   The trick for policymakers is to determine how to strike a peaceful bargain between the two states: getting the United States to avoid waging a preventive war out of fear it will be attacked after the transition occurs, and convincing China to avoid attacking before a power transition is complete in order to claim great power status.

The United States and China are the two most important states in the international system and are crucial to the evolution of global order. Both recognize each other as vital players in a range of issues of global significance, including the use of force, macroeconomic policy, nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, climate change and financial by: Description: In this book, Jin Kai provides an alternative perspective on the power interactions between a rising China and a "relatively" declining U.S.

in the changing world situation. Grounded in previous scholarship, Jin argues that China's rise is historically, culturally, and structurally different; a peaceful power transition requires engagement by the U.S. in international institutions.
