Overview

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the once numerous pronouncements of a coming conflict with China have been muted as both countries face new challenges. The contributors to this insightful volume discuss some of the most critical issues in contemporary U.S.-China relations and provide historical and cultural perspectives on these issues. The importance of every major development in U.S.-China relations is discussed, from the success of Chinese economic reform and the rise of civil society to the EP-3 collision and the Taiwan Strait issue. While not all contributors have the same interpretation of events or conception of their implications, this volume provides a balanced, non-partisan account that presents readers with a brief and comprehensive summary of the issues at the forefront of the debate over the future of U.S.-China relations.

Editorial Reviews

The China Journal
China is changing rapidly in all aspects. Fortunately, each of these chapters is a substantial scholarly contribution that reflects the depth of knowledge of its author and draws solidly on the historical and cultural context, and they are likely to stand the test of relevance and significance for some years to come.
Journal of Asian Studies
...Provides some insightful thoughts by prominent commentators on various issues related to Sino-American relations or China's domestic policy.

Ralph N. Clough
I urge anyone interested in the complex, changing relations between the United States and the People's Republic of China to read this book. The contributors, former senior U.S. government officials and outstanding academic analysts, provide a readable and thoughtful discussion of the principal domestic and international factors affecting the evolving U.S.-China relationship.
