9780231150774: America’s Response to China: A History of Sino-American Relations

America's Response to China has long been the standard resource for a succinct, historically grounded assessment of an increasingly complicated relationship. Written by one of America's leading diplomatic historians, this book analyzes the concerns and conceptions that have shaped U.S.-China policy and examines their far-reaching outcomes. Warren I. Cohen begins with the mercantile interests of the newly independent American colonies and discusses subsequent events up to the Tiananmen Square massacre and the policies of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. For this fifth edition, Cohen adds a chapter on America in the age of potential Chinese ascendance, envisioning future partnerships and the shrinking global influence of the United States. Trenchant and insightful, America's Response to China is critically important for understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century.

Review:

Warren Cohen... [is] the leading historian of Sino-American relations of his generation. This book has much to offer both newcomers to its subject as well as those who have been studying relations between these two countries nearly as long as its author. (American Diplomacy)

A fresh new look at the history of United States diplomacy towards China.... The subject will never be the same again. (John King Fairbank American Political Science Review)

Careful, well-documented. (Political Science Quarterly)

Lucid and concise... a model of its kind, thoughtful, even-tempered, and extremely well-written. (Pacific Historical Review)

Provocative and perceptive. (China Quarterly)

A venerable work. (Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom The Daily Beast)
