Summary "US-China Relations in the 21st Century addresses the bilateral relations of these two nations on international, domestic, societal, and individual levels between 1990 and 2005. This book examines whether China and the US can learn from history and manage a potential power transition peacefully. Grounding his research on contemporary US-China relations with thorough theoretical, historical, and policy explorations, Zhu selects two important cases of power transitions in history as the background for this study: power rivalry between Great Britain and Germany (1871-1914) that led to World War I, and the peaceful power transition from Great Britain to the United States (1865-1945)." "US-China Relations in the 21st Century contributes to the current IR theory by proposing a new analytical model on global power transition and provides recommendations for peacefully handling a potential power transition from the US to China in the future. This study is essential reading for scholars of US and Chinese foreign policy, world politics, and international relations."--Jacket.
