"… [R]aises an intellectual intriguing topic. It draws attention to the fact that Russia and China are two great powers that at present appear to be on rising trajectories, whereas the United States appears to be in decline. It is also important to consider that no single great power or combination of great powers other than Russia and China may in the foreseeable future successfully challenge the United States in its role as the world's only political and military superpower. Readers who are not students of international relations as a scholarly discipline will also appreciate a thumbnail sketch of major theories that deal with great-power competition. The book is also a valuable reference to a wealth of historical facts and narratives that bear on relations between the United States and China and China and Russia, from foreign deployments of U.S. troops, to recent China-Russia trade statistics, to Taiwan, Russia-China border treaties and clashes, and the role of pomp and protocol in China's foreign relations calculus. There is also a sensible, quick reference to relevant contemporary issues and actors such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, theater missile defense, North Korea, Iran, Sudan, Pakistan, and India."
