In the 21st century, Sino-American rivalry is the predominantly stabilizing and also destabilizing factor of the Asia-Pacific region. Professor Friedberg demonstrates in his newly published book that the ultimate goal of China is to "win without fighting," displacing the United States as the leading power in Asia while avoiding direct confrontation. The United States, on the other hand, aims to integrate China into the existing international system and to encourage its eventful transformation into a liberal democracy. But our leaders have too often sent mixed and misleading signals about our commitments and resolve, putting us at growing risk for crises and confrontations that might otherwise be avoided. At CIGS, we will have an opportunity to discuss with Professor Friedberg over the future of the Japan-U.S. relationship vis-a-vis China.
Dr. Friedberg was Director of Princeton's Research Program in International Security at the Woodrow Wilson School from 1992-2003, as well as Acting Director and then Director of the Center of International Studies at Princeton in 2000-2001 and 2002-2003. From June 2003 to June 2005 he served as a Deputy Assistant for National Security Affairs in the Office of the Vice President. In November 2006 he was named to the Secretary of State's Advisory Committee on Democracy Promotion. He is a former fellow at the Smithsonian Institution's Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Norwegian Nobel Institute, and Harvard University's Center of International Affairs.
