China is an enigmatic communist country. It has given up the path of hardcore communism since the demise of the founder of the communist regime Mao Tse Tung. Michael Schaller has elucidated in the book a good interpretive history of the Sino-American relations, in which he deals with the multi-dimensional issues that confront both the countries in their efforts to steal the march over each other.

If China plays a significant role in the Cold War, America is obsessed with the Vietnam War, which is an indirect warning to China for its intended adventures in Asia.
Schaller writes, “By 1973, Kissinger boasted that the United States and China had become “tacit allies.”(2) This is an important decision that must have taken the world by surprise when it was announced.

Schaller writes, “The new Bush administration in 2001 took to describing China as a “strategic competitor” or rival.”(3)Professor Schaller is eminently suited to write on the subjects that he has dealt with in the book. The post 1990 research
