Michael Pillsbury’s provocative book The Hundred-Year Marathon reveals China's subtle strategy to supplant the United States as the world's dominant power, and to do so by 2049, the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic.

Michael Pillsbury, who has served in senior national security positions in the U.S. government since the days of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, shows how American policymakers have been willfully blind to these developments for decades and calls for the United States to design a new strategy toward China as it really is, and not as we might wish it to be.

Join Freedom House for a discussion on how the United States should approach its foreign policy towards China under President Xi Jinping, given the country's growing impact abroad and the Communist Party's intensifying suppression of dissent at home.
