Professor to discuss ‘Improbable War’


A renowned Professor will visit the University of Wolverhampton next week to discuss the possibility of conflict between the US and China.
Christopher Coker, Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics, is the author of new book, The Improbable War: China, the United States and the Logic of Great Power Conflict.
The book has received positive reviews from national media, with the Financial Times stating: 'Coker's book serves as an insightful exposition of several cautionary points. The fact that the incidence of great-power wars has been declining, for example, has no bearing on the possibility of one between the United States and China. In addition, the irrationality of war does not make war impossible.'
The lecture has been organised by George Kassimeris, Professor of Conflict Studies, who said: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Professor Coker to the University for what should be a very interesting talk.”
