Recapitulations, Implications, and Prognostications
This concluding chapter reviews the central question, main argument, and primary findings of the study. It highlights implications of the findings for a number of significant topics, including the study of civil wars, policies for encouraging the political settlement of ongoing conflicts, and the possibility for conflict in the future, both between the United States of America and China and as a result of the continued spread of nuclear weapons. The most likely source of conflict between China and the United States would be a dispute over Taiwan. Theory here indicates that the Chinese, as the rising power, should see little need to demand immediate concessions on this issue; they can bide their time and can negotiate at a later date from a position of greater strength.
