This free issue of the newsletter is an excerpt from Rush Doshi’s new book “The Long Game: China’s Grand Strategy to Displace American Order”, provided by Oxford University Press.
Rush Doshi is the founding director of the Brookings China Strategy Initiative and a fellow (on leave) at Yale Law School's Paul Tsai China Center. Previously, he was a member of the Asia policy working groups for the Biden and Clinton presidential campaigns and a Fulbright Fellow in China. His research has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Foreign Affairs, and International Organization, among other publications. Proficient in Mandarin, Doshi received his PhD from Harvard University focusing on Chinese foreign policy and his bachelor's from Princeton University. He is currently serving as Director for China on the Biden Administration's National Security Council (NSC), but this work was completed before his government service, is based entirely on open sources, and does not necessarily reflect the views of the US Government or NSC.
This book is the first selection for the new Sinocism book club. I am going to try to select a China book every couple of months for our community to read and then discuss with the author in a subscriber-only virtual event. We are planning an event with Rush probably in late August/early September.
