Interpreting U.S.- China-Taiwan Relations presents an up-to-date, multidisciplinary approach to this often troublesome relationship through essays written by experts in the fields of political science, economics, military science, history and communications. It begins with a focus on the relationship between the U.S. and China as China presses forward with new development while the United States encourages a balance of power in East Asia. It evaluates the successes and failures of the relationship and the forces behind the stands that they take that feed the stress of the relationship. The second group of essays deals with the relationship between China and Taiwan. They examine the recent changes and tentativeness surrounding the situation caused by the death of Deng Xiaoping and the social and economic problems of China, yet communicate a tremendous optimism that a breakthrough will occur in the future. The final essays explore the evolution of China's perceptions of its international environment as it begins to understand and respond to external circumstances better and more positively.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With their mainland background, the contributors have brought to this volume fresh, unique, and perhaps challenging perspectives to the study of U.S.-China relations vis-a-vis Taiwan. They have been well-trained in the United States in advanced methodsand techniques in science, technology, the humanities, and the social sciences. They have also benefited greatly from firsthand experience with American views and institutions, and they have had access to American sources. Their findings therefore cannotsimply be discarded along with those of their mainland Chinese counterparts who have not had the same experience. * China Review International *
