China and the United States are world powers without serious rivals, forming the defining geopolitical contest of the 21st century: America values strategic decisiveness; China values patience. America has abandoned multilateralism; China welcomes it. In 2020, the relationship is even more tense due to the rapid growth of Chinese power, the aggravation of the coronavirus pandemic on existing relations, and a fraught political atmosphere amid the ongoing U.S. presidential election season.

In these circumstances, is confrontation avoidable? And if it happens, is the outcome already inevitable? Join Asia Society as Kishore Mahbubani, a diplomat and scholar with unrivaled access to policymakers in Beijing and Washington, discusses his recent book 'Has China Won?: The Chinese Challenge to American Primacy.'

This program is online-only and will be streamed to YouTube Live and Facebook Live. The webcast will begin 7:30 p.m. CT on Thursday, August 20. We welcome audience questions for the speakers.
