      Add to Calendar 2021-03-10T12:00:00 2021-03-10T13:00:00 America/New_York 2034: A Novel of the Next World War The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will host a virtual discussion with Visiting Fellow Adm. Jim Stavridis regarding his new book—his tenth, but his first work of fiction. Stavridis is the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He is currently an Operating Executive at The Carlyle Group. 2034: A Novel of the Next World War, is a geopolitical thriller that imagines a naval clash between the United States and China in the South China Sea, and the path from there to a global confrontation. Featured as a six-part series in Wired Magazine, 2034 is written as a disturbingly plausible work of speculative fiction. The novel takes us inside the minds of American, Chinese, Iranian, Russian, and Indian officials, as a series of miscalculations on all sides leads the world into an intensifying international storm. How can the United States and China prevent strategic competition from spiraling into conflict? How can works of fiction inspire creative, innovative approaches to Sino-American relations? The conversation will be moderated by Paul Kennedy, J. Richardson Dilworth Professor of History and Global Affairs. Jackson Visiting Fellows are distinguished practitioners invited to participate in an immersive multi-day program on the Yale campus, highlighting their extraordinary contributions to global affairs. They enrich the Jackson and broader university community through attending classes, giving public talks, and interacting with students and faculty through a variety of engaging events. false
