Initially, President Trump raised tensions with North Korea to a boil but then opened the way to two summits that may yet lead to the dampening of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and an easing of potential conflict. In the meantime, China’s advance on the world scene – economically, militarily, and diplomatically – have also given rise to tensions over Taiwan, trade, and new technologies. What lies ahead for America and Asia, and what might be done to prevent future conflicts?
To answer these questions and others, we are delighted to feature remarks by Michael Auslin, a regular columnist on US-Asian relations for the Wall Street Journal and author of several books on Asian topics, including Asia’s New Geopolitics: Reshaping the Indo-Pacific in the 21st Century (Hoover Institution Press, forthcoming) and The End of the Asian Century: War, Stagnation, and the Risks to the World’s Most Dynamic Region (Yale University Press, 2017). He also writes for The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, and the New York Review of Books. He served as director of Japan Studies at the American Enterprise Institute and an associate professor of history at Yale University.
