Editorial Reviews

Review

"Exhaustive, well-documented study... to anyone concerned about the future of U.S.-China relations-and the world-Lampton offers plenty to ponder." - UPI feature "In its impressive detail, is a useful and authoritative chronicle of the most recent decade of U.S.-China relations." - Washington Times "An exceptionally important book on the relationship between these two great powers.... No one has done a better job of explaining the relationship between the Chinese political system and China's foreign policy." - Times Literary Supplement "The author argues convincingly that China is the most important challenge of US diplomacy." - South China Morning Post "This book is a must-read for senior officials in the next administration." - William Perry, former United States Secretary of Defense and currently Professor at Stanford University "David Lampton brilliantly describes the complex interplay of conditions, constraints, and personalities that have shaped the Sino-American relationship since the end of the Cold War." - Carla A. Hills, former United States Trade Representative and currently Chairman and CEO of Hills & Company

From the Inside Flap

"David M. Lampton has written an extraordinary book. Systematic and comprehensive, highly original and interpretive, it captures the complexity of Sino-American relations as no other book has done."—Michel Oksenberg, coauthor of Policy Making in China: Leaders, Structures, and Processes

"Lampton paints a comprehensive and compelling picture of the up-and -down relationship between the U.S. and the PRC during the last fifty years. He offers clear insights into the underlying causes of the sometimes dangerous problems experienced in the past. He also offers sound prescriptions for how to make the relationship more constructive in the future. This book is a must-read for senior officials in the next administration."—William Perry, former United States Secretary of Defense and currently Professor at Stanford University

"David Lampton brilliantly describes the complex interplay of conditions, constraints, and personalities that have shaped the Sino-American relationship since the end of the Cold War. His keen eye, careful scholarship, and broad access to top leaders over three decades are apparent from his colorful quotations that open each chapter to his astute conclusions. His fresh, balanced, and insightful analysis is a ‘must read’ for those who aspire to understand and better manage a relationship that is key to peace and prosperity in the twenty-first century. Happily, this seminal work is as readable as it is scholarly."—Carla A. Hills, former United States Trade Representative and currently Chairman and CEO of Hills & Company

Format: Hardcover
Lampton writes from a perspective unencombered by the black and white thinking that often dominates both our domestic politics and other popular books on the subject. I found it a facinating insiders look at a relationship that will continue to be rewarding, challenging, and very important to the world political scene.

Format: Hardcover
Lampton is completely predictable. He is an apologist and seeks to justify each dreadful Chinese action against human rights with the promise of US jobs.
Lampton has never had any credibilty and never will with this book out
