Trust and Distrust in Sino-American Relations: Challenge and Opportunity (Hardcover)

by Steve Chan


“Steve Chan, a leading scholar of Chinese foreign policy, has once again come up with an excellent book, this time on the topic of ‘trust.’ In this succinctly written book, he provides a very rich theoretical and empirical discussion of trust and mistrust in international relations with the use of Sino-US relations as empirical case study. A valuable addition to both IR theory and the study of China’s foreign relations.” —T.V. Paul, James McGill Professor of International Relations, McGill University

"Trust and Distrust in Sino-American Relations does an excellent job of examining key levels of trust in China-US relations. Steve Chan’s theoretically informed analysis is a great contribution to the literature of international relations studies and the study of China-US relations." —Richard Hu, Head of Department and Professor, Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Hong Kong

“In Trust and Distrust in Sino-American Relations, Steve Chan covers a wide range of material in an accessible and sophisticated manner to identify important possibilities for building trust in Sino-American relations. The book makes an important contribution by exploring especially both the domestic and international challenges of legitimating a policy of strategic restraint in the US-China context." —Nicholas J. Wheeler, Professor of International Relations and Director of the The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security, University of Birmingham

“With the future of international relations so dependent on how the U.S. relationship with China evolves, Steve Chan’s theoretically informed and systematic analysis of different sources of trust and mistrust in Sino-American relations is required reading for international relations theorists, policy analysts, and concerned citizens.” —Jack S. Levy, Board of Governors' Professor, Rutgers University
