Horns of a Dilemma: Great Powers, Great Struggles


In this episode of Horns of a Dilemma, Joshua Shifrinson, Assistant Professor of International Relations with the Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, gives a talk on his recently released book, Rising Titans, Falling Giants: How Great Powers Exploit Power Shifts. Shifrinson focuses on the policies that rising states adopt toward their declining competitors in response to declining states’ policies, and what that means for the relationship between the two. This talk took place at the University of Texas at Austin and was hosted by the Strauss Center and Clements Center.
