"There are a number of informative books on the market about U.S.-China relations. Some provide a broad overview of the development of Sino-American ties, while others focus on specific substantive issues that affect those ties. Some scrutinize domestic politics and policy-making in one or both countries, while others assess the impact of third countries on the Beijing-Washington connection. But this is the first book in recent memory to combine all four perspectives. Its chapters, each written by a recognized authority in the field, offer an inclusive, comprehensive assessment of the ever-shifting dynamics of the 21st century's most important strategic relationship." - Richard Baum, Professor of Political Science, UCLA and Author, China Watcher: Confessions of a Peking Tom

Swaine, Senior Associate, China Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

"Suisheng Zhao and his co-authors have produced a very sound volume. They focus on the revival of China as a great power and how the United States will face that challenge. They explore how that interaction will play out in relations with third countries - a particularly useful perspective." - Richard Bush, Director of the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies, Brookings Institution
