Additional Course Details: 


Is the so-called “Thucydides trap”—that is, war and conflict between a rising power and a declining one—inevitable in the U.S.-China relations? What wisdom can we gain from learning their complex relationships in the last two centuries? This course investigates Sino-American relations in history, particularly the key moments when the two countries’ relationship took shape and went through transformation. This bilateral relationship will be examined within the broad context of shifting global and regional orders from the age of gunboat diplomacy to the Covid-19 pandemic. Readings include both scholarly literature and primary documents. Group III in the History major.
