China and Transatlantic Relations
China is now, un-disputably, a key player in the world order economically, politically, and strategically. The six contributions to this special issue cast penetrating light on these matters with wide ranging perspectives on how they have impacted in transatlantic relations. The first two from Christopher Jespersen and Priscilla Roberts focus respectively on the 1940s and 50s: Madame Chiang Kai-shek’s influence on Anglo-American-Chinese relations from 1943 to 1948; and the role of US and British Think-Tanks on China policy during the Korean War. Frank Cain looks at the impact of the Western strategic embargo on China in the early years of the Cold War and Richard Moss on the Nixon/Kissinger opening to China in the 1970s and relations with Europe. The final two papers by Joe Renouard and Klaus Larres look at contemporary issues: the US-Europe-China human rights debate and an examination of the West’s China policy under Trump and on the cooperative and divergent policies that have characterized the policies of the transatlantic allies.
