US Foreign Policy in the Asian Century - POL389

Many scholars speculate that the American Century that Henry Luce proclaimed in 1941 is being displaced by an Asian Century. The explosive growth of capitalist economies in Asia has shifted the center of gravity in the global political economy, which poses many challenges for US hegemony and foreign policy in Asia. This unit explores the nature of these challenges, and examines the past, present and possible futures of US foreign policy in Asia, with a particular focus of US-China rivalry
