Two Superpowers: Navigating China and America in the New Age of Uncertainty

Starbucks is opening a new store in China every 15 hours and TikTok is redefining American social media – even as tensions build over Taiwan, cyberhacking and threats to global health. For the first time in a generation, the world has entered an era dominated by two superpowers. Unlike rivals in the Cold War, the U.S. and China are also entwined on an unprecedented scale. Recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award and numerous other honors for his reporting on China, Evan Osnos, one of our preeminent analysts of global affairs and U.S. politics, combines deep knowledge with up-to-the-minute insights to assess the new global balance of power. Are China and America on a collision course, or can we find common ground?
