In this episode, we hosted Dr. Hal Brands (Professor, Johns Hopkins University, SAIS) and Dr. Zack Cooper (Senior Fellow, American Enterprise Institute).

Dr. Hal Brands is an expert on American strategy and Cold War history, and in recent years, he has written numerous articles and books on the U.S.-China rivalry and U.S. foreign policies. His recent book, Danger Zone: The Coming Conflict with China, was also published in Japanese and has received a lot of attention in Japan. Dr. Zack Cooper is also an expert on U.S. defense policy in Asia, alliances, and U.S.-China strategic competition, and has written numerous reports and articles and appeared on podcasts.

In this episode, Dr. Brands gave a speech based on his argument in Danger Zone; why China now faces peak-out, why this situation could increase the risk of US-China conflict, and what the US needs to do to deter China. Afterwards, Dr. Satoru Mori (Keio University) and Dr. Cooper joined a discussion with Dr. Brands, and exchanged their views and thoughs on a wide range of issues, including the impact of next year's election in Taiwan on China's policy, the role of nuclear weapons in Taiwan's contingency, and the prospect of strategic ambiguity.
