I fall in love with this book. Mearsheimer, you are a great writer. Wonderful logic and the arguments.

Mearsheimer, in this monumental work, outlined his theory of realism. Drawing from examples of the United States' behavior towards rising powers in other regions, Mearsheimer argued that, the common pattern was the active and deliberate preemption of these would-be powers' rise to prominence, hence securing the predominance of the United States. His view of aggressive power-seeking power informs the preemption of China's rise by a coalition of balancing states. This book resonates strongly with Mearsheimer's earlier works, and is a must-read for realist researchers.
