The Practice of Power

US Relations with China since 1949

Rosemary Foot

A Clarendon Press Publication

The change in American relations with China after 1949 from hostility to rapprochement, and to full normalization of the ties in 1979 is examined here. Rosemary Foot goes on to examine the relationship after normalization in 1979, a period when the United States has come to view China as less of a challenge but still resistant to certain of the norms of the current international order.
