Transition Scenarios by William R. Thompson Transition Scenarios, Paperback (October 2013)

China's rising status in the global economy alongside recent economic stagnation in Europe and the United States has led to considerable speculation that we are in the early stages of a transition in power relations. The authors take readers through possible scenarios for future relations between China and the United States.

Handbook of International Rivalries by William R. Thompson Handbook of International Rivalries, Hardback (October 2011)

Several dramatic changes in international relations at the end of the 20th century seemed to suggest that rivalries (and the conflicts that often result) between states were receding. The question remains therefore - is conflict increasing or decreasing? This title intends to answer that question. It examines roughly 200 strategic rivalries.
