The Pacific as the Pivot of World History

One Belt, One Road, the trade war, Sino-American relations, the liberal world order. These are issues that dominate the headlines. But they are part of a longer, deeper story: that of great power struggle for mastery of the Pacific. Restoring the Pacific to center-stage in world affairs, Sulmaan Wasif Khan recasts our understanding of the twentieth century--- and of where we are and where we might be going in the twenty-first.
