Overview

A fascinating and long-overdue examination of the political, economic, and human rights issues impacting U.S. policy toward China.
China will achieve a position of paramount importance in the world economy and the global political order in years to come; yet, the United States holds to no consistent policy with regard to this rising superpower. In the ideological void left by the end of the cold war, media images and expediency seem more likely to guide U.S. actions toward China than any clearly stated agenda.
At this critical point in the history of U.S.-China relations, Living with China offers an essential historical assessment composed by leading scholars and political analysts. From Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Tibet and the legacy of Tiananmen Square to trade, markets, and commercial diplomacy, these compelling essays address the complex web of issues that will shape future relations with China. This book offers important facts and insights for anyone interested in this most important and thorny of foreign policy issues.

Editorial Reviews

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.
