Beschreibung:

The book, a trenchant critique of the American China policy, explores the reasons for continuing American paranoia in viewing China as a potential enemy even though China poses no economic or strategic threat. Even the U.S. Defense Department concedes that, except for a small elite force, Chinese defense forces are ill-trained, ill-equipped and technologically lag far behind the U.S. armed forces. Even during the Mao era, China did not underestimate the importance of the United States, both as a source of technology and as a market but above all as a countervailing force against the erstwhile Soviet Union. However, all Chinese overtures were either misunderstood or ignored because of the disproportionate influence of ultra-conservatives in American politics. The book concludes that American paranoia can be explained mainly in terms of American political culture with its insatiable demand for funds for never ending elections. As beneficiaries of big business largesse, presidents and Congress members promote the interests of their financiers. One good way to provide easy money for large corporations is to have intermittently winnable mini-wars. The threat of a potential enemy also acts as a means of social control. It is in these contexts that the threat of China as a potential enemy is kept alive. The book will be highly useful for the students, teachers and researchers of Political Science and International Relations. Besides, the policymakers, diplomats and those interested in knowing about Sino-American relations will find it equally valuable. Printed Pages: 464. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 41271

About the Author: Radha Sinha, a graduate from Patna University, has a distinguished career throughout. He taught at Ranchi University (Jharkhand) for more than a decade before moving to the United Kingdom. After a short spell at Manchester University, he moved to Glasgow University where he taught for nearly 25 years and retired as a Professor of Political Economy. Subsequently, he was invited to take up the Chair of International Economics at Sophia University in Japan where he worked for ten years. For short periods he has also taught in Australia, Denmark, Israel, New Zealand, Sweden and the United States. Now retired, he lives in Scotland and in India. Professor Sinha is widely acclaimed for his contributions in understanding the issues related to poverty, hunger, landlessness and income inequality. Some of his ideas developed during his service as consultant to the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) have influenced subsequent thinking in these areas. He has also made some serious contributions to the understanding of economic development in China, India and Japan.
