From Recognition to Rivalry: 50 Years of US-China Trade Relations

The People’s Republic of China has confronted the United States with diplomatic challenges ever since Washington recognized Beijing in the 1970s. Basic to this engagement has been economics, and particularly trade, which has elicited American responses ranging from enmity, fear, and uncertainty to hope and cooperation. Thomas Zeiler, Director of the University of Colorado’s International Studies Program, will discuss the US-China trade relationship from a US policy perspective, beginning with the Nixon administration opening to Beijing to the Trump trade war.
