Study on the rise of China as a dangerous superpower
Author(s): Kamal Tasiu Abdullahi, Joseph Phiri
Abstract: History teaches us that rising super powers are likely to provoke war. In the twentieth century, rising superpowers such as the Germany and Japan were the cause of two devastating world wars. Inevitably, as China moves up the economic and technological ladder, it will compete with America and expand its global reach. But the question is, will China’s rise wreak havoc in the United States and the World? China’s economic and military power makes it one of the most dangerous superpowers to disrupt the world order, but some shreds of evidence show that China’s rise to power still faces obstacles, especially domestically, which could undermine much of the economic, political, and military power China has established.
