Abstract:

There appears to be a broad public expression of anti-U.S. sentiment across China. Anti-U.S. sentiment may be prompted by perceived hostile U.S. actions, such as blocking Chinas bid to host the 2000 Olympics and dispatching aircraft carriers to the Taiwan Strait. Negative public sentiment in both China and the United States could lead to a further deterioration in the relationship between the two countries. To avoid further deterioration, a working mechanism should be established through which Washington can consistently engage Beijing in dialogue at the highest level.
