Library Journal - Library Journal
In The Coming Conflict with China (LJ 2/15/97), Richard Bernstein and Ross Munro paint China's emergence as a world power as a direct threat to U.S. interests and global leadership. The present work, a collection of high-quality, policy-oriented essays by nine leading specialists, is an antidote to such fear-based studies. Without underestimating the difficulties involved in reaching a modus vivendi with a country whose political system is so unlike our own, the authors present balanced discussions of areas of common interest and potential cooperation as well as of discord. Harry Harding offers a constructive approach to dealing with the issue of human rights, and Mike Lampton, Michael McElroy, Chris Nielsen, and Kenneth Lieberthal also offer essays that are particularly worth reading. Permeating this work is the realization that a nonconfrontational U.S.-China relationship is the key to global stability in the next century. For all libraries.Steven I.
