2. America vs China: A history of Sino-American Relations 1783-Present – Barry Entin
4 weeks, Tuesdays, 9:00-11:00, January 12-February 2, 2021.
The US and China have had formal diplomatic and commercial relations since the founding of our nation. We are presently at a tense moment in our history. China is a rising power economically and militarily and hopes to be the ascendant power in the Asian-Pacific region if not the entire world. How did our relations with China reach this moment in history? How do we deal with this new reality? In this course I hope that I can supply some answers and some historical context to arrive at potential answers to these questions.
