Abstract:

The author examines the reciprocal relations between China and the United States over the past century and a half. She believes that these two countries must overcome the deep perceptual gap between their cultures, their historical views, and their ideological perspectives so that misunderstandings and misconceptions will not cause potential conflict. Chinas size, population, and burgeoning economy will elevate it to a more prominent role in Asia, the Pacific, and the world by 2020, which is all the more reason for those concerned with Americas security to develop a better understanding of this rising giant.
