  Read chapter 2, 3 and 4 and the following documents attached
In your second es.say, you will answer one of the following questions:
What      issues, or sorts of issues, would be likeliest to cause a war between      the United States and China?
Would      mutual abolition of nuclear weapons make war between the United States and      China more likely or less likely?
Be sure to explicitly state which question you are answering. Answer only using material from this unit.
Your answer should be no more than 800 words long. It should be at least 500 words as a minimum
A rubric has been provided for you. Review it. This rubric will be used for all short p.apers for the course. Please note that an excellent pa.per will be focused on answering the question by advancing a clear and persuasive the sis (no long introductions are necessary). 
Your pa.per will also acknowledge and rebut at least one other plausible answer to the question. I recommend identifying the strongest objection to your th esis that you can find and explicitly showing how your argument addresses that objection.
An excellent pa.per will also use course material and only course material (readings and lectures) to answer the question.
Given that you have only a maximum of 800 words, I strongly recommend that you write a draft p. aper and then revise thoroughly, using the rubric as a guide.
Your references do not require a bibliography; simply be direct about to which lecture or reading you are referring. Please provide page numbers when possible.
