Yo-Yo Diplomacy: An American Columnist Tackles The Ups-and-Downs Between China and the US

Author(s): Tom Plate
ISBN: 978 981 4751 43 8

Yo-Yo Diplomacy

A central fact of our times is that China (a superpower trying to get its act together) and America (a superpower trying to keep it together) are linked by emotional and historical angst, substantive contemporary tension, and mutual economic and strategic needs. Which is to say: sometimes it seems as if China-US relations are absolutely in a yo-yo state, endless up and down pistons – and nobody knows where and when the yo-yo will stop. In this compilation of his latest columns, award-winning journalist, bestselling author and university professor Tom Plate tackles these questions with aplomb, reviewing his commentary over the past two years in a searching (and sometimes self-critical) re-evaluation of where he was right and where he went wrong – and how best to move forward in the US-China relationship.
