This course examines the tangled relations between the United States and China in the competitive geopolitics since 1949. The intensity of U.S.-China partnership and rivalry can be discerned in a wide range of national and international events such as the Chinese Revolution, the Korean War and the Cold War, the pro-democracy movement in China and the human rights debate, and China's economic reform and its rise as a global economic and political power in the 21st century. By drawing on scholarship in political and social history and area studies, this course analyzes both the historical context and contemporary developments of US-China relations. It helps students better understand the formation and transformation of US-China relations and its impacts on domestic, regional, and global history.
