The relationship between China and the United States is without a doubt the most important bilateral relationship in the world, which is why it is a subject of increasing interest for scholars at home and abroad. In particular, a variety of issues have emerged in recent years that have prompted strategists from both countries to set about mapping out the future of China-U.S. relations.

Wang Jisi, director of the Center for International and Strategic Studies at Peking University, has delivered his findings about this question in the recently published "Great Power Relations." This book illustrates various schools of thought and perspectives on Sino-U.S. relations, and summarizes the historical conflicts between established and the emerging powers. It looks back on the long but tortuous path of Sino-U.S. relations for the past century. But more importantly, it puts these relations in the new global context, striving to find ways and means to establish a new-type of major power relations and offering a clear road-map for the future.

The main argument of this book is that building a new-type Sino-U.S. relations is a "3D project" involving domestic politics, diplomacy and third parties. What will define the future path are these two countries' respective political, economic and social developments. Only through expanding common ground and solving disputes cautiously can we push forward the development of the new type of Sino-U.S. relations and avoid conflicts.
