Abstract : Chinese and American relations can be best characterized as correct and cooperative during the 1970's and 1980's. But the United States has unilaterally initiated a breach in these relations when over the past five years the U.S. has strongly criticized Chinese behavior and intentions. What has gone wrong with the close ties that the two countries enjoyed during the previous two decades? This paper focuses on Chinese conduct when U.S. and Chinese relations were more cordial. It demonstrates that China has consistently maintained her policies since the initial thaw in American/Chinese relations during the Nixon Administration. U.S. attitudes toward China have changed but not Chinese behavior.
