This introductory chapter starts by discussing the main objectives of the book (which are to uncover the range of conditions that led to a change in American relations with China – from hostility to rapprochement to normalization in 1979, and to examine the management of that relationship since normalization) and giving an outline of its contents. It points out that each chapter may be read in isolation, although they are also parts of a complex whole. The rest of the chapter discusses the concept of power, the US as hegemon, and power in relation to the American—Chinese relationship.

Keywords:   American—Chinese relations, China, hegemon, history, power and American—Chinese relations, power, United States as hegemon
