Abstract

China’s President Hu Jintao has ended his state visit to America last month with not just US$47 billion worth of commercial deals, but also some conciliatory gestures. Nevertheless, the looming question is what will happen in 2012, with a new team of Chinese leaders taking over, while US President Barack Obama stands for re-election. Events over the past year have marked more ups than downs in the relationship between these two giants. What worries the Chinese leaders? What are domestic issues affecting their conduct of foreign policy? University of Virginia's Harry Harding shares his take with SMU.
