The United States and China are in a period of uncertainty not seen in bilateral relations since the 1970s. The United States has elections that are proving unprecedented. In China, jockeying in the run up to the Nineteenth Party Congress of 2017 is intense. Worldwide, resentment against globalization and slowed economic growth is creating additional pressures. And finally, shifting balances of power are forcing strategic recalibrations throughout East Asia and in the U.S. military posture. Dr. Lampton examined these forces and the prospects that they can be managed in the decade that lies ahead.”
