This course examines the making of foreign policy in the United States through the lens of U.S.-China ties. From the Korean War to trade conflicts, from human rights to weapons proliferation, this bilateral relationship has arguably become the most complex and formidable of all of Washington's diplomatic challenges. It provides much case material through which to interrogate the dynamics of international relations. We will examine a wide range of topics and also avail ourselves of the opportunities that the capital provides for firsthand observation.
