US-China Relations in the Twenty-First Century : A Question of Trust, Hardback Book

US-China Relations in the Twenty-First Century : A Question of Trust Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies on the Chinese Economy series

Description

The relationship between the United States and China will be of critical importance to the world throughout the twenty-first century.

In the West China's rise is often portrayed as a threat and China seen in negative terms.

This book explores the dynamics of this crucial relationship.

It looks in particular at what causes an international relationship to be perceived negatively, and considers what can be done to reverse this, arguing that trust is a key factor.

It goes on to discuss US and Chinese rhetoric and behaviour in three key areas - climate change, finance, and international security.

The book contends that, contrary to much US rhetoric, China's actions in these areas is often much more flexible and accommodating than the US position, and that the Chinese are much more knowledgeable about, and understanding and appreciative of, the United States than vice versa.
