Revue de presse

These fascinating conversations between leading Chinese and American experts constitute a highly accessible and informative guide to the state of the most important diplomatic relationship in the contemporary world. (Francis Fukuyama, Stanford University)

Readers of Debating China will feel as if they are participating in high-level Track II diplomacy, the quasi-official efforts of former government officials, foreign policy experts, and interested stakeholders to help two governments come closer together. The exchanges between prominent Americans and their Chinese counterparts are not always reassuring, but they are stimulating, important, and rare. (Anne-Marie Slaughter)

This is a dynamite concept extremely well-executed. I can give it two of my highest accolades: I'm finding it hard to stop reading and I'm planning to use it as required reading for my class next semester. (Harry Harding, University of Virginia, Dean of Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, Professor of Public Policy and Politics)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The US and China form the only great power relationship in the world. Theirs is therefore the most closely watched relationship in international politics, and it is not an exaggeration to say that global stability hinges on it. The multitude of issues that America and China must handle together makes it exceedingly delicate - and even more knotty than the earlier US-Soviet relationship because of the complexity of the economic ties connecting China and America.
In Debating CHina, Nina Hachigian, an emerging star in the field of US-China policy, pairs leading scholars from both the US and China in dialogues about the most crucial elements of the relationship: trade and investment; economic development; monetary policy; climate change and clean energy; political systems, values, and rights; the emerging military rivalry; regional security in south and northeast Asia, Tibet and Taiwan; and the media, including the Internet. She precedes the issue-focused chapters with a broad overview of the relationship for general educated readers. The dialogues between American and Chinese scholars are intended to give readers a balanced view of the topic at hand, and the two perspectives on offer for each issue area-some contrasting, some complimentary-are perfect for students trying to obtain a better understanding of US policy towards China. Logically structured and comprehensive in coverage, Debating China will be an essential primer on the most important international relationship of the twenty first century.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read For All Curious People! 2 janvier 2014
Par Robert C. Adler - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you want to read only one book about the US-China perceptions of one another on the most important issues that will affect the entire world for many future generations, read this book! Though anyone with even a casual interest in the US-China debate should read this, it is written for everyone. Nina Hachigian paired a China and US expert for each major issue and set them free to present their candid responses to what Hachigian wrote as "Framing Questions." It was a creative way to discover just how and what each country and, more importantly its people, thinks of one another in terms of global intentions and trustworthiness. I found these conversations so informative and engaging, it was difficult to stop reading. Each time I felt confident supporting a stated response, I then read the counterargument and quickly gained a respect for the struggle facing both sides. This book reiterates there are two sides to every argument. Hachigian's outstanding experts did not pull punches. There is very little feel-good diplomatic speak. This book made me feel like a fly on the wall inside a room with only the top China and US leaders speaking their true feelings about the most important issues that can only be resolved by our two countries. No press, no U Tube. Move over CNN......this is the real story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sheer irreconcilable differences between US and Chinese basic values and perceptions 23 mai 2014
Par Gerrit van der Wees - Publié sur
This book represents a comprehensive exchange between US and Chinese scholars on a broad range of issues, and clearly shows the wide gap existing between the two sides on basic values and policies. Kudos to Hachigian for bringing this exchange about and for the rigorous and systematic fashion in which she organized the debate.

What becomes increasingly clear as one reads through the book is that sheer irreconcilable differences exist between the basic values and perceptions of the two sides. Virtually all Chinese scholars perceive the US as standing in the way of China’s rise to prominence and a leadership position in the region, if not the world.

Two of the sharpest exchanges are between Columbia University professor Andrew Nathan and Chinese scholar Zhou Qi (on “Political Systems, Rights and Values”), and between Christopher Twomey of the US Naval Postgraduate School and Xu Hui of China’s National Defense University (on “Military Developments”).

Nathan emphasizes the universality of human rights and discusses how under the current system in China these rights are systematically violated at every political level, from the Party to the police, to the state security ministry. Ms. Zhou counters that China is striving to ensure communal rights and freedoms, and that in the process individual freedoms cannot be a focus yet.

In the chapter on military developments Twomey and Mr. Xu clash on the need for China’s major military buildup during the past two decades. Twomey argues that China is not threatened by outside forces, and states that the US pivot / rebalancing occurred in response to China’s provocative moves against its neighbors in the East China Sea (Senkakus) and South China Sea.

We would be amiss if we did not comment on the chapter on Taiwan and Tibet, in which Jia Qingguo of Peking University and Alan Romberg of the Stimson Center are the discussants. As expected Professor Jia does toe the Beijing government line and presents the case for unification along the lines of Hong Kong and Macao as inevitable.

Romberg does set him straight on a number of points, explaining that the policies followed by the Beijing government are not winning the hearts and mind of the people in Taiwan, and that in any case few people in Taiwan feel any sense of political affinity with China: they feel that they have earned their own place and role in the world, and overwhelmingly reject unification.

However, a drawback of this chapter is that Romberg does betray his political colors and his alignment with the positions of the ruling Kuomintang in Taiwan. It would have been good of Hachigian would have found a commentator with a more objective stance in that respect.

Many other chapters are worth reading, but let me close by focusing on one overall perspective prompted by former Assistant Secretary Jim Steinberg’s observation at the end of the book. In his closing remarks Steinberg argues that to dispel the mutual mistrust there is a need for “strategic reassurance”: concrete steps that explicitly address each other’s source of misgiving, especially, but not exclusively on matters of security.

The fundamental problem with this approach is that it treats the US-China relationship as a kind of “dual exceptionalism”: the concerns / interests of the two major powers tend to get higher priority, to the detriment of the interests of other players in the region. And those other players are democratic allies of the United States, such as Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines.

A much more constructive approach would be to discuss, and deal with, the concerns and interests against the background of a broader picture, in which regional interests and the rights of the smaller players are protected, and deals between the US and China at the expense of others are avoided.

In conclusion: an important and multifaceted work that presents excellent insights into the profound differences between US and Chinese values and perspectives. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Breath of Fresh Air 21 janvier 2014

Let’s face it: when it comes to foreign policy, the US often talks but forgets to listen. Time and again we’re so busy telling other countries and peoples how the world works, that we don't quite get around to hearing how their world actually works - according to them. The resulting list of devastating foreign affairs ‘surprises’ is a long one, and would read like a comedy of errors, if IEDs or Vietnamese Boat Refugees were funny. This is why I sometimes get a little depressed when I try to follow the national debate on China. The US relationship with China is probably the single most important foreign policy issue of the 21st century. It is fraught with uncertainties. Yet our politicians (and many experts) talk about it with such certainty, that I keep seeing flashes of Robert McNamara and Dick Cheney. I keep thinking, ‘Great, but how do the Chinese feel about this?’ and ‘Talk less, listen more.’
This is where Nina Hachigian’s book ‘Debating China’ comes in.
If you, like me, want to know what the Chinese are thinking: Nina Hachigian has pulled together ten high-level Chinese experts, and lets them have their say, on issues that stretch from Intellectual Property Rights to Taiwan to Climate Change to Human Rights. (I know: ten falls a little short of 1.351 billion, but it’s a start.) And if you want to have the Chinese views put in perspective by American experts, well, Hachigian provides you with ten of those as well. She presents, in other words, a high-level dialogue, a back-and-forth, and it’s the breath of fresh air the debate on China desperately needs. It should be required reading for anyone in international affairs. I keep thinking: what if there had been a ‘Debating Iraq’ in 2002? Or a ‘Debating Vietnam’ in 1964? Or… Well, you get the picture. Read it, and pass the word.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why don't we see this format more often? 16 janvier 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This book takes the critical - yet strangely unusual - step of framing US/China issues as a dialogue where both sides are usually smart, well-informed, and well-intentioned. The letters are individually fascinating (and sometimes disturbing). Cumulatively, they provide the hope that with thoughtful people on both sides talking to each other, there is the possibility of forward progress. The author's comments and background make clear that she understands the nuances of US/China relations, but for much of the book she is smart enough to listen with us as the contributing correspondents speak for themselves.

The most fundamental and insightful analysis I have seen of this most important topic. Well worth the read, particularly for those with dealings in China now..
