The last four years have seen significant damage in US-China relations that will take years to rebuild. Early signs within the Biden Administration indicate that an expeditious return to strong Sino-US ties is premature at best. To fully address these challenges and regain credibility both at home and abroad, the Biden team will need to recalibrate a new set of values, objectives, and thinking in redefining the most important bilateral relationship in the world. This edited book volume seeks to reimagine US-China relations, provide innovative policy analysis, and utilizes a truly multidisciplinary approach coupled with both first and second-hand quantitative data, infographics, geopolitical analysis, and perspectives from leading experts. More importantly, this book project provides a nuanced perspective highlighting the central issues that will define America and China both now and well into the future. Whether you are a policy-maker, business professional, academic, established practitioner, or a casual observer, this impressive volume provides exceptional insight on issues like technology, trade, cross-Strait relations, security & alliances in East Asia, geopolitics, climate change, and much more.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“A unique and fascinating set of essays from scholars around the world, From Trump to Biden forces the reader to think in new ways about the U.S.-China relationship and how the Biden administration can best advance U.S. interests in the face of a more powerful and assertive China.” (Elizabeth Economy, Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution at Stanford University and Senior Fellow for Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.)

“The evolving relationship between China and the United States will define the next half-century, with a mix of competition and cooperation that defies traditional definitions. From Trump to Biden and Beyond helps us understand how this relationship is evolving along many facets: geographical, technical, and cultural. It’s an important book for an important time.” (Clint Hinote, Air Force Officer and Military Strategist)

“This timely compilation provides an important guide to the major challenges and opportunities facing the Biden Administration as it seeks to reengage with China after the tumultuous Trump years. The book offers practical pathways for advancing American interests vis-à-vis China in key regions, as well as an essential framework for cooperation and healthy competition in addressing our global climate emergency. Highly recommended.” (Barbara Finamore, Founder, NRDC China Program, Senior Visiting Research Fellow, Oxford Institute of Energy Studies and author, “Will China Save the Planet”)

“As is evident from the analysis in this book volume, there are no easy solutions to any of the issues raised as it pertains to US-China relations; in many cases it will be akin to managing a chronic health condition rather than searching for a cure. But an enhanced understanding of the breadth of the issues, and their interactive nature, is essential to developing effective policy prescriptions.” (Craig Broderick, Senior Director, Goldman Sachs)

“At a time of great flux and acrimony in US-China relations, sober assessments and policy recommendations are more vital than ever. This impressive volume spans a huge array of topics, from finance to climate to technology, while bringing together insights and perspectives from experts and regions around the globe. A valuable resource for analysts and practitioners alike.” (Jessica Chen Weiss, Associate Professor of Government at Cornell University and the author of Powerful Patriots: Nationalist Protest in China’s Foreign Relations (Oxford University Press, 2014))

“Talk about timely books! As the Biden Administration cautiously seeks to develop its own responses to China’s multiple challenges, Earl Carr and his expert colleagues offer not only thoughtful analyses of the key issues and regions involved but also concrete, practical policies for improving the most important bilateral relationship in the world. All those concerned about trade, investment, geopolitics, climate and human rights will benefit from this volume’s fresh insights.” (Jerome Cohen, Professor of Law at New York University Law School and Senior Fellow for Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations)
