Summary "U.S./China Relations examines the National Forensic League's 2016/2017 Policy Debate resolution: "The United States federal government should substantially increase its economic and/or diplomatic engagement with the People's Republic of China." This volume will explore various issues related to this complex debate - from reforming aspects of U.S./China trade to assisting China in negotiating ongoing concerns over Taiwan and Tibet, improving human rights conditions, and protecting the rights of indigenous populations within China. Other questions explored will include how to better understand and manage China's territorial ambitions in the South China Sea and other parts of Asia, how to work with China to develop sustainable energy and resource policies, and how best for the countries to assist one another in confronting the threat posed by terrorism worldwide. Myriad economic considerations - from labor to inflation and currency exchange - will also be examined in order to give a broad picture of this multifaceted matter"--Publisher's website.
