The last four years have seen significant damage in US-China relations that will take years to repair. Early signs within the Biden administration indicate that any declaration of a return to smoother Sino-US ties is premature. To fully address the challenges of this relationship and regain credibility both at home and abroad, Washington will need to articulate a new set of values, objectives, and tactics to redefine the most important bilateral relationship in the world.

As Biden’s first year in office coincides with the 50th anniversary of U.S. President Nixon announcing his visit to The People’s Republic of China, a global community of experts and policy thinkers set about to reimagine U.S.- China relations. From Trump to Biden and Beyond is the result of those efforts.

For business professionals, policy-makers, academics, and casual observers alike, this book provides

substantive insights on global issues that will define America and China both now and well into the future.

“ A unique and fascinating set of essays from scholars around the world, From Trump to Biden forces the reader to think in new ways about the U.S.-China relationship and how the Biden administration can best advance U.S. interests in the face of a more powerful and assertive China. ”- Elizabeth Economy, Senior Advisor for China to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo (Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution

currently on leave).

“As is evident from the analysis in this book volume, there are no easy solutions to any of the issues raised as it pertains to US-China relations; in many cases it will be akin to managing a chronic health condition rather than searching for a cure. But an enhanced understanding of the breadth of the issues, and their interactive nature, is essential to developing effective policy prescriptions.” - Craig Broderick, Senior Director, Goldman Sachs
