The Hundred-Year Marathon: China's Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower Hudson's Michael Pillsbury on China's competition with the U.S.

This is without question the most important book written about Chinese strategy and foreign policy in years. —Robert Kagan

In The Hundred-Year Marathon, distinguished defense and national security policy advisor Michael Pillsbury asserts that since its founding, the People’s Republic of China has outwitted the U.S. with the goal of restoring China to its rightful place atop the global hierarchy. Based on work that earned Pillsbury the CIA Director’s Exceptional Performance Award, the book incorporates interviews with Chinese defectors and newly declassified national security documents to challenge the misguided assumptions in Washington about a gradually reforming China.

On Tuesday, February 3, Hudson Institute hosted a discussion with Pillsbury, director of Hudson’s Center on Chinese Strategy, Representative J. Randy Forbes, Chairman of the Congressional China Caucus, and Senior Fellow Husain Haqqani on the implications of a China-led world order and the policy options the U.S. should implement while developing its own competitiveness strategy.
