Early this year, I met and had a delightful, engaging conversation with Kevin Rudd, the Australian ambassador to the U.S. I was intrigued by his wealth of knowledge and understanding of the issues and challenges we currently face in the Indo-Pacific region. As chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s Indo-Pacific Subcommittee, I was excited to meet Mr. Rudd and read his book “The Avoidable War: The Dangers of a Catastrophic Conflict Between the U.S. and Xi Jinping’s China.” Mr. Rudd, a former prime minister and foreign minister who has lived and worked in China, describes the conflicts and geopolitical competition between the U.S. and China. This book has been particularly useful to me for its insights into the history of the U.S.-China relationship, how China came to fill the leadership vacuum created by the actions of previous U.S. administrations, and how we can avoid a potential war.
