Summary As relations between the United States and China move into a period of intense activity and sensitivity, this timely book addresses the impact of domestic factors in both countries on their post-Cold War/post-Tiananmen relations.
The contributors examine the issue from a number of distinct perspectives: -- the increased impact of domestic factors in both countries due to changing strategic circumstances. Since the many conflicting interests do not involve strategic imperatives, policy debates can flourish and domestic politics can influence policy making.-- the politics of China policy in the United States, with emphasis on the role of interest groups vis-a-vis Congress, the media, and other domestic institutions.-- the importance of domestic factors in U.S.-China economic conflicts. For China, factors include the economic system, trade policies, and human rights issues. For the United States, the importance of domestic and foreign economic policies and the impact of domestic constituencies on policy toward China.-- the combined impact of domestic factors in both China and the United States on the most important conflict of interest in U.S.-China relations -- the Taiwan issue.
