Co-edited and introduced by Ashley J. Tellis, the nineteenth volume in the Strategic Asia series—Strategic Asia 2020: U.S.-China Competition for Global Influence—will be published in January 2020. The new book will offer a forward-looking assessment of how the rivalry between China and the United States is playing out around the globe. Each chapter examines how a country or region (including Japan, South Korea, India, Taiwan, Russia, Oceania, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Americas) is coping with the consequences of Sino-U.S. competition and draws implications for U.S. policymakers.
