2034: A Novel of Next World War, with authors ADM James Stavridis and Elliot Ackerman

July 1, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

BENS South East is pleased to present a Virtual Discussion with Admiral James Stavridis and Mr. Elliot Ackerman co-authors of the new book, 2034: A Novel of the Next World War.

This geopolitical thriller 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 fiction. The novel takes us inside the minds of American, Chinese, Iranian, Russian, and Indian officials, as a series of miscalculations on all sides lead the world into an intensifying international storm. We will explore how the United States and China can prevent strategic competition from spiraling into conflict and how a work of fiction can inspire innovative approaches to Sino-American relations.

Cost: $
