Chinese foreign relations : power and policy since the Cold War by Robert G Sutter( Book )

39 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive introduction to Chinese foreign relations explores the opportunities and limits China faces as it seeks growing international influence. Tracing the record of Chinese foreign relations since the end of the Cold War, Robert G. Sutter provides a nuanced analysis that shows that despite popular perceptions of its growing power, Beijing is hampered by both domestic and international constraints. This text's balanced and thorough assessment shows China's leaders exerting more influence in world affairs but remaining far from dominant. Facing numerous contradictions and tradeoffs, they move cautiously as they deal with a complete global environment."--Jacket

Foreign relations of the PRC : the legacies and constraints of China's international politics since 1949 by Robert G Sutter( )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the international relations of the People's Republic of China since its founding in 1949 and provides a balanced assessment of the country's recent successes and advances as well as the important legacies and constraints that hamper it, especially in nearby Asia - long the focus of China's foreign policy attention. The author demonstrates how Beijing has carefully created an image of a China that follows consistent policies based on morally correct principles, but its record shows repeated episodes of sometime surprising change and frequent use of violence, intimidation, and coercion. China's leaders, he argues, still fail to manage the desire for productive foreign relations with their aspirations to build Chinese security and sovereignty interests. Image-building efforts condition Chinese public and elite opinion to be extraordinarily sensitive, self-righteous, and often alarmist in dealing with the many disputes China has with its Asian neighbors and the United States
Chinese foreign policy after the cultural revolution, 1966-1977 by Robert G Sutter( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1986 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's rise in Asia : promises and perils by Robert G Sutter( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's rapid military and economic growth has fueled a steady stream of analysis and debate about the PRC's motivations and objectives regarding the United States. Yet until now, there has not been a sustained, single-authored assessment in English of China's expanding influence in Asia in the post-Cold War period. Respected analyst Robert Sutter draws on his extensive experience in the region to explore the current debate on China's rise and its meaning for U.S. interests by examining in detail China's current and historical relations with the key countries of Asia."--Jacket
Chinese policy priorities and their implications for the United States by Robert G Sutter( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States in Asia by Robert G Sutter( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thoughtful and deeply informed book assesses the background, status, and outlook of U.S. relations with the Asia-Pacific. Noted expert Robert G. Sutter takes issue with the "declinist" school of thought that he sees as overstating U.S. weaknesses while at the same time underplaying its strengths in the region. He provides a balanced inventory of the major strengths and weaknesses in American relations with Asia and weighs the significant points of agreement and disagreement between the United States and the governments and peoples of the region at the end of the George W. Bush administration." "Sutter carefully considers widely held views of the United States in decline, with its leadership role in regional affairs threatened by a range of political, economic, and security problems. The author finds that recent U.S. difficulties have not fundamentally undermined the main foundations of the leadership, power, and influence that America has exerted in the region for many years. Instead, he convincingly argues for U.S. policy options that will help to remedy prevailing difficulties while sustaining U.S. interests and its leading role in Asian and Pacific affairs."--Jacket

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. policy toward China : an introduction to the role of interest groups by Robert G Sutter( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increased fluidity and pluralism in U.S. policy toward China in the postDCold War period have led to growing non-governmental influence as both the administration and Congress have become the target of intense lobbying by organized groups concerned with human rights, trade opportunities, relations with Taiwan, and other hotly debated issues. This balanced study examines the central role of these organizations and shows how the recent movement toward a more consistent and coherent administration policy on China remains tentative and under attack, especially in the wake of Asian campaign contrib
Shaping China's future in world affairs : the role of the United States by Robert G Sutter( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers Chinese foreign policy and China's future role in world affairs in the context of the country's recent past. Robert Sutter shows that although it appears to be in U.S. interests for post-Mao leaders to continue moving toward international norms, a post-Deng leadership backed by growing economic and military power and reflecting profound changes in China's economy and society could move in markedly different directions." "Most foreign powers appear willing to accommodate China, avoiding actions that could prompt a sharp shift in Chinese foreign policy, but Sutter argues that current U.S. policy intrudes on so many issues that are particularly sensitive for Beijing and for China's future that it represents perhaps the most critical variable determining how China will position itself in world affairs. Concluding that there is no guarantee the United States will use this influence wisely, Sutter examines the uncertainty and unpredictability of U.S. foreign policy in the post-Cold War environment that work against the creation of an effective U.S. policy toward China."--Jacket

Historical dictionary of Chinese foreign policy by Robert G Sutter( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The foreign relations of the People's Republic of China have gone through dramatic change since 1949. The strong-man rule of Mao Zedong and the Chinese Communist Party leader's dominance of Chinese foreign policy decision making for three decades witnessed dramatic swings in alignment, repeated and strong commitments to revolutionary goals and ideals, and spasms of destructive mass campaigns within China that spilled over to impact Chinese foreign relations. Contrastingly, as China emerged in the 21st century as an economic and military power second only to the United States, the new

Shaping China's future in world affairs : the U.S. role by Robert G Sutter( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author analyzes the key factors that shape China's domestic and international policies. He outlines a regime that is pragmatic in its international political and economic relations but highly protective on territorial and sovereignty issues, noting that it is a regime in transition and giving interpretations of where that transition might be headed. The author reviews U.S. objectives and courses of action and suggests that Chinese leaders will have as much difficulty predicting the future course of American policy as the other way around. He concludes with several useful guidelines for those charged with formulating policy with respect to China
The United States and Asia : regional dynamics and twenty-first-century relations by Robert G Sutter( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Offers a cogent overview of the historical context and enduring patterns of U.S. relations with Asia ... Robert G. Sutter provides a balanced analysis of post-Cold War dynamics in Asia, which involve interrelated questions of security, economics, national identity, and regional institution building. He demonstrates how these critical concerns manifest a complex mix of realist, liberal, and constructivist tendencies that define the regional order. Sutter weighs how the recent US emphasis on "re-engagement" with the broader Asia-Pacific fits within the context of regional dynamics. He assesses how the United States has responded to Asia's growing strength and importance while at the same time trying to maintain its leading position as an Asian power despite China's rising influence"--
