About the Author
Bob Sutter is among the best academic analysts of American foreign policy toward Asia. Adding to his first edition, this volume provides an insightful, up-to-date assessment of the continuities and disjunctions of the Trump administration’s unusual approach to Asian affairs.
— Sheldon Simon, Arizona State University
The Trump administration has reshaped Washington’s Asia policy on Beijing, moving decisively to check a rising China. Bob Sutter is supremely qualified to assess and explain this seismic shift in American policy and international relations. Students of Asia and of American foreign policy are well served by the sharp analysis in this book.
— Ming Wan, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University
Robert Sutter is the leading expert on U.S.-Asian relations. His latest book combines the insights of a former government analyst with the skills of an academic to provide a fair-minded, careful account that pays due regard to the views of both sides, while making his own views clear. It deserves to reach a very wide audience.
