In The Rise of China vs. the Logic of Strategy, Luttwak goes beyond an attack on Sun Tsu. He argues that the dominant strategic and cultural arrogance of the Han people—the largest ethnic group in China—could undermine efforts to lift the Middle Kingdom to the ranks of true superpower status. As the rest of the world worries about what a future might look like under Chinese supremacy, Luttwak worries about China’s own future prospects. Applying the logic of strategy for which he is well known, he argues that the world’s second largest economy may be headed for a fall unless China’s leaders check their military ambitions. Applying the logic of strategy for which he is well known, Luttwak argues that the most populous nation on Earth--and its second largest economy--may be headed for a fall. For any country whose rising strength cannot go unnoticed, the universal logic of strategy allows only military or economic growth. But China is pursuing both goals. But the paradoxical logic of strategy is always the same.¹ China’s rising power necessarily evokes increasing resistance, so that it may well become weaker at the level of grand strategybecauseof its own rising military strength—a paradoxical outcome rather common in the realm of strategy. A mild and yielding diplomacy, free of arrogance.
