In 2020 the global pandemic of coronavirus has further tested governance model in countries throughout the world. At the same time, the US has spared no effort to repeatedly pressurize China in a comprehensive way (including sanctions in response to Beijing imposing the National Security Law on Hong Kong) after launching a trade war. The world’s No. 1 and No. 2 powers are decoupling from one another quickly, and falling into the Thucydides's Trap. The attacks by the US and other Western countries on China can be considered as a sign of anxiety out of the fear for the ending of Western hegemony over the world (asserted by French President Emmanuel Macron). How the world’s two largest economies respond to the turning point in the recent 300 years will make a great impact on human well-being. The author, Yip Kwok-wah, from the perspective of Big History, with an intimate knowledge of international situation and well-versed in humanities, provides a rich discussion and critical analysis of various aspects of the turning point in history. The book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the world, China and Hong Kong’s future.
