Abstract: Power transition theorists, represented by A.F.K. Organski, subjectively argue that it is irresistible for the rising power to challenge the dominant power by waging a war, for the former's dissatisfaction with the existing international order and its increasingly powerful national strength. Then Robert Gilpin contends that it is the dominant state that launches a preventive war to contain the rising state. Reasonably, according to their logic, a violent power transition between the PRC, the rising power and the United States, the dominant power is unavoidable in the future.
