Among the great events that will mark the 21st century - climate change, civilization conflict, medical miracles, technological triumphs - the rise of China as a global force is likely to figure prominently. This will happen at a time when the United States is the world’s sole superpower; conflicts of interest will be inevitable. In fact, they already exist. Harm de Blij, a world-renowned geography scholar, television personality and Distinguished Professor of Geography at Michigan State University, returns to the January Series to discuss the possibility of a Second Cold War, which may vex this new century as the First Cold War bedeviled the last, and what can be done to avert this threat.
