253 | Realignment Double-Header: Is a U.S. Conflict with China Inevitable?

New Format: In a special, two-part episode, two guests join The Realignment to provide differing perspectives on a pressing issue. First, Dr. Aaron Friedberg, Princeton professor and author of Getting China Wrong joins to argue why the post-Cold War "engagement" approach to China failed, and how the U.S. should redefine the relationship. Second, Zachary Karabell, previous Realignment guest and author of Inside Money: Brown Brothers Harriman and the American Way of Power, joins to discuss his NYT op-ed arguing that the U.S. should prioritize pushing back against actual Russian aggression as opposed to hypothetical Chinese actions.
