Additional Information

A fascinating and long-overdue examination of the political, economic, and human rights issues impacting U.S. policy toward China.

China will achieve a position of paramount importance in the world economy and the global political order in years to come; yet, the United States holds to no consistent policy with regard to this rising superpower. In the ideological void left by the end of the cold war, media images and expediency seem more likely to guide U.S. actions toward China than any clearly stated agenda.

At this critical point in the history of U.S.-China relations, Living with China offers an essential historical assessment composed by leading scholars and political analysts. From Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Tibet and the legacy of Tiananmen Square to trade, markets, and commercial diplomacy, these compelling essays address the complex web of issues that will shape future relations with China. This book offers important facts and insights for anyone interested in this most important and thorny of foreign policy issues.

It's possible that China's emergence as a world power in the 21st century -- if relations between the US and China are friendly -- will mark the beginning of a new era in which the world will enjoy unprecedented stability and peace. On the other hand, unfriendly US-China relations have the potential to bring a nuclear holocaust upon the world. Understanding and dealing with the development this situation is crucial to the future of the planet. "Living With China" stands out from the dozens of recent China books as the most intelligent, carefully reasoned, thoroughly researched analysis of the topic. Written by a top China scholars (rather than opinionated journalists with limited understanding of China and, apparently, little respect for the future of civilization), this collection of essays addresses every important aspect of US-China relations and demonstrates the importance and benefit of friendly ties between our two countries. Unavoidably, the prose is more sober... Read more
After I finished the reading of this book I realized that the US-China-Taiwan relation is established fundamentally on the view of Michel Oksenberg. Of course Lieberthal has play an inportant role on the decision making of the State Department.

But all the discussion focused on what the PRC thinks and how big will be its economy. Shall these exports ask the following questions?

1. CCP is claiming they are the sole leadership of China. Is it legitimate?

2. CCP owns the PLA. PLA plays an important role in its regime's decision making. Do you know the agenda of PLA?

3. The total GDP of Taiwan ranks 20th in the world. It is just behind Sweden but it exceeds the countries Turkey, Norway, Denmark, Indonesia. Malaysia, Thailand, greece and Portugal. Taiwan is not a "small" country. Any country comparing with China is a small country. Where is the view of 23 million Taiwanese in these report?
The nine essays that are found in "Living With China" thoroughly assess the relationship existing between the United States and the People's Republic of China, offering avenues of discussion such as: environmental issues, human rights violations, the independence of Taiwan, the importance of allowing China to join the WTO, and the inevitability of China increasing its economic as well as military strength. The book is still very relevant despite its copyright date of 1997.
