China's Strategic Competition with the United States

Russell Ong

Research output: Book/ReportBook


China's rise as an economic, political, and military power and the expansion of its diplomatic activism beyond Asia into Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East has profoundly transformed its relationship with the United States. This book examines the transformation and the multifaceted nature of the relationship between US and China in the twenty-first century, and argues that it is more competitive than co-operative, even in areas that are amenable to co-operation such as trade and nuclear non-proliferation. It addresses important questions including: Does China's growing power and influence inexorably come at the expense of the United States or the wider world? and To what extent do the national interests and policies of the United States and China coincide or diverge on a host of regional issues? It covers all the important issues including politics, security, nuclear deterrence, military modernization, energy, trade and economic interaction, and Asia-Pacific power reconfiguration.
