CSCC New Book

book cover

After Engagement: Dilemmas in U.S.-China Security Relations is published by Brookings Institution Press, featuring conference papers from 2019 CSCC annual conference, edited by Avery Goldstein and Jacques deLisle

In this timely book, leading scholars of U.S.-China relations and China’s foreign policy address recent changes in American assessments of China’s capabilities and intentions and consider potential risks to international security, the significance of a shifting international distribution of power, problems of misperception, and the risk of conflicts. China’s military modernization, its advancing technology, and its Belt and Road Initiative, as well as regional concerns, such as the South China Sea disputes, relations with Japan, and tensions on the Korean Peninsula, receive special focus.
