“America and China’s Dangerous Game of Geopolitical Poker” is Dr. Mohan Malik’s latest article for The National Interest . In it he discusses key reasons for China’s aggressive posturing and outlines major strategic shifts that are occurring in Asia’s geopolitical landscape.

For Beijing, history—the Chinese Communist Party’s version of history— trumps international law and norms. The Asia-Pacific region is thus on the threshold of change—the known and unknown; challenges and uncertainties abound.”
