Product Details


…the essays that Rosecrance and Steven Miller have assembled in this volume are judicious and nuanced, brimming with insights for theorists, historians and policy-makers alike.—Ali Wyne, Global Asia

One of 2014’s more thoughtful books.

Julian Snelder, The Interpreter, Lowy Institute for International Policy, Australia—

Examining the causes of World War I, Rosecrance and Miller’s star-studded cast of scholars ask all the right questions.

Lawrence Freedman, Foreign Affairs

The 2014 centennial brought multiple comparisons between Europe 1914 and Asia 2014. Some of the best are assembled in Rosecrance and Miller’s The Next Great War?: The Roots of World War I and the Risk of US–China Conflict (2015).

Stein Tonnesson, International Area Studies Review

An excellent new academic volume, ‘The Next Great War?: The Roots of World War I and the Risk of U.S.-China Conflict,’ co-edited by Richard Rosecrance and Steven Miller, highlights that, in addition to deterrence, the United States also needs to work hard at cooperation—at integrating China into the global system.

Fareed Zakaria, The Washington Post

The Next Great War? asks whether we are truly in a 1914 moment today and whether war between China and the United States is inevitable. The answers, thankfully, are no and no.

Stephen John Stedman, The American Interest

The Next Great War? is essential reading both for those who are interested in the relevance of previous power transitions for East Asia today as well as those studying the international relations of the World War I era…. At a time when there has been much superficial punditry concerning the relevance of World War I for the present, this is a very welcome contribution.

Todd Hall, International Studies Review

To mark the centenary of World War I, an impressive array of distinguished scholars and practitioners have produced an edited volume revisiting the origins of this momentous conflict and drawing implications for the early twenty-first-century rise of China…. this volume is highly recommended for those who desire a magisterial overview of the road to World War I combined with thoughtful observations about the future trajectory of U.S.–China relations.

Andrew Scobell, Political Science Quarterly
