Greater China and U.S. foreign policy : the choice between confrontation and mutual respect ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A group of internationally prominent China scholars held a conference at the Hoover Institution in December 1994 to discuss how U.S. policy can best respond to recent changes in China and Taiwan. Despite the diversity of their perspectives, their analyses made clear that a "get-tough" policy would ultimately fail. This volume presents, in ten authoritative chapters, the first comprehensive overview of this complex topic - along with sound reasoning to support its provocative conclusion. The papers included here not only analyze the recent evolution of Chinese foreign policy toward Taiwan, Taiwan's development and policy on unification, security and economic issues, and the problem of human rights but also set forth the main political and diplomatic visions that will affect the future of greater China. As a whole, this book coherently formulates the principles that should guide U.S. policy toward greater China in the next decades

The ivory tower and the marble citadel : essays on political philosophy in our modern era of interacting cultures by Thomas A Metzger ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Ivory Tower and the Marble Citadel opens up a new way of pursuing the critical development of political philosophy in today's intercultural intellectual arena. Metzger holds that political philosophies are linguistically unavoidable efforts to infer the principles of morally legitimate government from a maximally enlightened conceptualization of the universal human condition. Because these efforts depend on a vocabulary embodying culturally inherited premises, textual analysis uncovering these premises and debate about how they should be revised are crucial for the improvement of political philosophy."--Publisher's website
