In contrast to the abstractions of the preceding chapter, general factors are translated into a specific discussion of the evolution of the China-United States relationship – albeit with a stress on the Chinese position. Specifically, radical technological innovation, weapons development/military modernization, strategic orientation, spatial domains, and threat perception/dissatisfaction are all given attention in a challenger context. The discussion should help to clarify the meaning of some of the general factors and, at the same time, help pave the way to subsequent scenario construction.

Keywords:   Chinese challenge, radical technological innovation, weapons development, military modernization, strategic orientation, spatial domain, threat perception, dissatisfaction
