China and the United States
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Lardy, Nicholas R.
Kapp, Robert A.
Examines the developing nature of U.S.-China relations and the obstacles facing U.S. foreign policy toward China.
The 1990s witnessed the rise of China as one of the world's great powers, however efforts to build a framework for constructive Sino-American engagement were complicated by a number of controversial issues. Systematic abuses of human rights, an expanding Chinese military, and the ballooning of a $40 billion annual trade deficit all featured prominently in America's perception of China. As the world's two dominant powers sought to define their roles in relation to each other, highly charged questions about the relationship arose on both sides. How important is China to the United States, and what should be the goals of American foreign policy toward China? In this episode of Great Decisions, host Peter Krogh sits down with Dr. Nicholas Lardy, a China expert and Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Robert Kapp, President of the U.S.-China Business Council, to discuss the evolving state of U.S.-China relations.
