Overview

From Trump’s aggressive rhetoric against China to the escalating trade war with tit for tat responses, and China’s 2025 initiative that threatens the US global leadership in advanced technologies, tensions between the US and China (the two dominant forces of today’s world) have never been higher.

This book provides a timely analysis of the US-China relationship. Each model is deeply rooted in their respective histories and cultures, with both models highly successful in achieving their main goals and highly resilient over time. It explores the core misconceptions on governance, economic, social and military issues, and the root causes of these misconceptions. If China and the US could close the gap by each understanding those differences and their implications, the author argues, they could work together to overcome global issues to the benefit of all. This paperback edition, includes a new introduction.
