Robert Sutter, long recognized as one of the nation's leading analysts and historians of Chinese-American relations, now takes the story through the early months of the Trump administration—to which he does not give high marks for its policies toward East Asia. (Warren Cohen, emeritus, University of Maryland, Baltimore County)
In this latest edition of US-Chinese Relations, Robert Sutter provides a timely analysis of perhaps the most consequential bilateral relationship in international politics. His work is at once informed by a deep understanding of the past and focused on contemporary challenges and opportunities faced by the world’s reigning superpower and its rising counterpart. A balanced and insightful account, this is a must read for policy makers, scholars, and students alike during a crucial period of geostrategic transformation in the Indo-Pacific region. (Jingdong Yuan, University of Sydney)
Robert Sutter has produced an excellent introduction to one of the world’s most consequential bilateral relationships. In a single volume, he provides a concise history of US-China relations from the late eighteenth century to the present, followed by a clear-headed forecast of the future. This new edition offers an updated overview of the major issues in the relationship—from trade, human rights, and Taiwan to climate change and international security. Sutter also adds a consideration of analysis of the maritime disputes in East Asia and the prospects for Sino-American relations in the Trump Administration. Consistently balanced and insightful, this is the text I regularly assign in my courses on the relationship between the United States and China. (Harry Harding, University of Virginia)
This comprehensive and lucid assessment of the historical and contemporary determinants of Sino-American relations, now updated through 2017, explains the conflicted engagement between the two governments. Offering a welcome richness of discussion and analysis, distinguished analyst Robert G. Sutter explores the twists and turns of the relationship over the past two hundred years. As the only book on the subject that combines a unified assessment of the historical evolution, contemporary status, and likely prospects of US-Chinese relations, this balanced and pragmatic study will be an essential resource for all concerned with the globe's most crucial bilateral partnership.
Over the years, Robert Sutter has been among the most knowledgeable of all American specialists on China. In his ambitious new book, Sutter describes the twists and turns of Sino-American relations over the past two centuries. Sutter shows how American and Chinese policymakers have a strong interest in avoiding public discussion of the conflicts between the two countries and the negative aspects of their relationship; he then proceeds to show, skillfully, just what those conflicts have been and will be. This is a sober account, a perceptive look at where the United States and China have been and where they are headed. (Previous Edition Praise) (James Mann, author of About Face: A History of America's Curious Relationship with China, from Nixon to Clinton)
