"These fascinating conversations between leading Chinese and American experts constitute a highly accessible and informative guide to the state of the most important diplomatic relationship in the contemporary world." --Francis Fukuyama, Stanford University
"Readers of Debating China will feel as if they are participating in high-level Track II diplomacy, the quasi-official efforts of former government officials, foreign policy experts, and interested stakeholders to help two governments come closer together. The exchanges between prominent Americans and their Chinese counterparts are not always reassuring, but they are stimulating, important, and rare." --Anne-Marie Slaughter
"This is a dynamite concept extremely well-executed. I can give it two of my highest accolades: I'm finding it hard to stop reading and I'm planning to use it as required reading for my class next semester." --Harry Harding, University of Virginia, Dean of Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, Professor of Public Policy and Politics
"Debating China is a stimulating and unusual exploration of key dimensions of the U.S.-China relationship. Its 'conversational' format facilitates the back-and-forth exchange missing in other studies. Pointed, sharp, and substantive, these conversations illustrate clearly why the United States and China do not see eye-to-eye on most issues, yet why they must 'agree to disagree.' A perfect text for classroom use and a stimulating read for specialists." --David Shambaugh, George Washington University, and author of China Goes Global
