Sure for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’s Trap?

by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
List price: $28.00 Price: $21.78 Buy Now

Product description

CHINA AND THE UNITED STATES ARE HEADING TOWARD A WAR NEITHER WANTS. The reason is Thucydides’s Trap, a deadly pattern of structural stress that results when a rising power challenges a ruling one. This phenomenon is as old as history itself. About the Peloponnesian War that devastated ancient Greece, the historian Thucydides explained: “It was the rise of Athens and the fear that this instilled in Sparta that made war inevitable.” Over the past 500 years, these conditions have occurred sixteen times. War broke out in twelve of them. Today, as an unstoppable China approaches an immovable America and both Xi Jinping and Donald Trump promise to make their countries “great again,” the seventeenth case looks grim. Unless China is willing to scale back its ambitions or Washington can accept becoming number two in the Pacific, a trade conflict, cyberattack, or accident at sea could soon escalate into all-out war.

In Destined for War, the eminent Harvard scholar Graham Allison explains why Thucydides’s Trap is the best lens for understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century. Through uncanny historical parallels and war scenarios, he shows how close we are to the unthinkable. Yet, stressing that war is not inevitable, Allison also reveals how clashing powers have kept the peace in the past — and what painful steps the United States and China must take to avoid disaster today.

"Originator Mike McColl-Jones worked alongside Graham Kennedy for almost 20 years, churning out jokes and scripts for the popular goggle-box show, In Melbourne Tonight. McColl-Jones is a veteran comedy writer for Australian television; writing not only for Kennedy, but for stars such as Don Lane and Bert Newton. Pretty than simply being a biography of the man known as, ‘The King’, this is an insight into how Kennedy’s colleagues felt about him. ‘It is the private Graham Kennedy’. It includes Kennedy’s struggles as a child-the atypical training, the uncertainty of his father going to war and his passion to be a radio presenter. The book shows what a remarkable person Graham Kennedy was in his time."--Publisher details.


Skaters wrangle sickness - The Southington Observer

Silent to two thirds of the Warrior-Knight ice hockey team was sick with some kind of illness, and it showed out on the ice early in the week. Hall-Southington’s two-profession winning streak came to an end after the Warrior-Knights suffered a 4-1 loss to Wethersfield-Middletown-Rocky Hill-Plainville at accommodation on Wednesday. The Eagles are currently third in Division III. “We didn’t have it tonight,” said Hall-Southington coach Brian Cannon. “We didn’t have liveliness or read-and-react. 1— The Eagles jumped out to a 3-0 lead after scoring goals in each of the three periods. The first aspiration came on a missed play. The second came on a power play. “We couldn’t get there and get a hold of the guy’s stick fast enough, and they poked it in,” said Cannon. “On the promote one, we stuffed the puck into some legs on the center-ice faceoff and didn’t react to it never going through. They picked it up, skated down, and put it in our net. Will Carpenter scored Theatre-Southington’s lone goal of the game with just under four minutes remaining in the third period, assisted by Jacob Herz and Graham Kennedy. The Eagles scored their fourth ideal of the game seconds later. “They outplayed us in every aspect of the game,” said Cannon. They had better reaction and moved the puck up the medial because we let them, which created a lot of opportunities for them. Zach Monti saved 11 of WMRP’s 15 shots on goal. The Warrior-Knights took 28 shots on ambition and committed three of the six penalties in the contest. 4— The Warrior-Knights wrapped up the week by settling with their second tie of the season after composition, 3-3, with Masuk at home on Saturday. After a scoreless first period, the Warrior-Knights jumped out to a 2-0 lead with goals by Anthony Abbatiello and Miles Aronow. But the Panthers fired back with three unanswered goals in the third era to take a one-goal edge. Two of those goals came off power plays. “They’re the domino effect of one, two, or three missed plays in lightning-fast succession,” said Cannon. “Then our guys are trying to take a penalty to stop a play from happening or ending up in the back of our net. We’ve taken far fewer penalties this year, even with some of these games, than we typically have over just the same from time to time. However, Abbatiello netted his second goal of the game off a backhander with 25. 2 seconds remaining in regulation to send the contest into overtime. “We lined them up and gave them instructions,” said Cannon. We moved the puck across, side to side, and scrambled to advocate it to the open guy. It was an intentional play, which was nice to see. With a little over two minutes remaining in the extra period, a Masuk skater took the puck down the ice on a breakaway, but devastated possession off his skate on an open look at the goal. The Panthers took four shots on goal in overtime. The Warrior-Knights had their unlooked-for moments later when a pass crossed through the crease in front of Masuk’s goalie. The puck went wide and just missed the joint of a one-timer. The Warrior-Knights took four shots on goal in overtime as well. “It’s very frustrating when you turn a two-target lead into one goal behind,” said Cannon. “You have to pull a rabbit out of your hat to keep the game going along. I’ll give our guys faithfulness for doing that, but we should have never been in that position. Zach Monti saved 13 shots on goal. The Warrior-Knights took 23 shots on objective and committed six out of the eight penalties in the game. The Warrior-Knights will be back on the ice this week with games against Woodstock Academy (12-0-1), the Redhawks (8-7), and Enfield-East Granby-Stafford (3-8-1). Woodstock Academy is currently the top group in Division III. Hall-Southington is currently 4-6-2 overall.

The title says a lot about Crestfallen's outlook - he was never an inflammatory, confrontational rapper, and generally sought to entertain rather than challenge. While most of this melodic, pure R & B-ish album (which includes his remake of the Gamble & Huff classic Now That We've Found Love) is fun and escapist in nature, the self-proclaimed Overweight Lover shows himself to be a singular and effective social commentator on the title song, Letter to the Future (which urges a teenage criminal to change his ways) and Sister Sis

That Was the Year That Was - 1968
The to the max would never be the same again It was a year of seismic social and political change across the globe. From the burgeoning anti-Vietnam war and civil rights movements in the Synergetic States, protests and revolutions in Europe and the first comprehensive coverage of war and resultant famine in Africa. To some, 1968 was the year of sex, drugs, and lull and roll. Yet it was also the year of the Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy assassinations; the riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago; Prague Cause to occur; the antiwar movement and the Tet Offensive; Black Power; the generation gap; avant-garde theater; the upsurge of the women’s movement; and the beginning of the end for the Soviet Coupling. www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ehCU3oUtVY 1968 In both Europe and America Japanese imported cars and other goods were continuing to spring up and trouble the governments of UK and USA as they worried about industries in their own countries being effected and jobs lost.

"I ponder it's very dangerous for a free society to have all the information distilled and packaged by our government and given to us. Do we know to this day who we killed in Iraq? I don't think so. If bringing war into the living reside means that we as a people will say we don't want to do it that way anymore we want to figure out other ways to solve these conflicts, then I would say that photography and television have done us a great service." - Michael Deaver, late Deputy White House Chief of Staff Well one of the great things about Netflix is that it gives me an opportunity to go back and see so many fantabulous programs that I somehow missed the first time around. For me, one of those programs was PBS' excellent documentary, American Photography: A Century of Images. Although not wholly as long as last year's equally fine BBC documentary "The Genius of Photography," I found it compelling in an entirely remarkable way. At a little over 3 hours in length,...
