Abstract : The author analyzes the key factors that shape China's domestic and international policies. He outlines a regime that is pragmatic in its international political and economic relations but highly protective on territorial and sovereignty issues, noting that it is a regime in transition and giving interpretations of where that transition might be headed. The author reviews U.S. objectives and courses of action and suggests that Chinese leaders will have as much difficulty predicting the future course of American policy as the other way around. He concludes with several useful guidelines for those charged with formulating policy with respect to China.
