America's response to China; an interpretative history of Sino-American relations by Warren I Cohen( Book )

49 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in English and held by 2,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's Response to China has long been the standard resource for a succinct, historically grounded assessment of an increasingly complicated relationship. Written by one of America's leading diplomatic historians, this book analyzes the concerns and conceptions that have shaped U.S.-China policy and examines their far-reaching outcomes. Warren I. Cohen begins with the mercantile interests of the newly independent American colonies and discusses subsequent events up to the Tiananmen Square massacre and the policies of George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. For this fifth edition, Cohen adds a chapter on America in the age of potential Chinese ascendance, envisioning future partnerships and the shrinking global influence of the United States. Trenchant and insightful, America's Response to China is critically important for understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century."--Book cover

The Asian American century by Warren I Cohen( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warren I. Cohen examines how cultural influences have transformed--and benefited--both Asians and Americans. Cohen reviews the role of the United States in East Asia over the past century, making a convincing case for American influence in Asia as generally positive. He illustrates specific ways in which American culture has affected Asians, from forms of government to entertainment, and offers valuable insights into the nature of cultural exchange. Americanization was most successful when Asians freely adopted cultural elements, while efforts to impose values generally failed, notably in the Philippines. And in an assessment of the "Asianization" of America, Cohen observes that Asian influences in food, film, music, medicine, and religion are now woven deeply--and permanently--into the American fabric. Indeed, Asians are changing American identity itself: by mid-century, approximately one in ten Americans will boast Asian ancestry. In this look at the cultural bonds that continue to shape the relationship between East Asians and Americans, Cohen invites us to ponder the past and envision the future as the "American century" gives way to one with a decidedly more Asian focus

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"East Asia at the Center's expansive historical view puts the trials and advances of the past four millennia into perspective, showing that East Asia has often been preeminent on the world stage - and conjecturing that it might be so again in the not-so-distant future."--Jacket
The Chinese connection : Roger S. Greene, Thomas W. Lamont, George E. Sokolsky and American-East Asian relations by Warren I Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first half of the twentieth century, the number of Americans who had both the desire and the ability to transmit their opinions on the affairs of China and Japan to America's foreign policy decision-makers was small-fewer than 100 American missionaries, educators, journalists and former diplomats. The Chinese Connection is the story of three important participants in the intensification of America's relationship with East Asia. None of them has been the subject of a previous biography. The experiences of these men reflect much of the American encounter with China and Japan in the first half of the twentieth century: efforts to assist in the modernization of China, responses to Japanese imperialism, and attempts to understand the struggle between communism and nationalism in China

Hong Kong under Chinese rule : the economic and political implications of reversion by Warren I Cohen( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume, prepared by several of the world's leading specialists on Chinese commerce, finance, law, and international relations, explain what reversion will mean to the people of Hong Kong and to those of us who invest, trade, and shop there. Will a Hong Kong ruled from Beijing continue to be a safe haven for those who live there and those who earn their fortunes there? The contributors to this volume note that Chinese leaders have shown only limited comprehension of what the continued success of Hong Kong will require. Nonetheless, they are agreed that China will try to maintain Hong Kong's role in the international economic system and that the prognosis for the short run is good. In the long run, they fear that Beijing will inadvertently strangle the goose that lays the golden egg

East Asian art and American culture : a study in international relations by Warren I Cohen( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a beautifully illustrated book and a lively, entertaining, illuminating discussion of the contribution and effects of East Asian art on American culture. Warren Cohen portrays the assembling of the great American collections of East Asian art, public and private, and the idiosyncrasies of the collectors. Particular attention is focused on how this art became part of the cultural consciousness of the people of the United States, transforming their culture into something more complex than the Western civilization their ancestors brought from Europe. Cohen tells of art collectors, dealers, and historians, of museums and their curators, of art and imperialism, art and politics, art as an instrument of foreign policy. One of America's leading diplomatic historians, Cohen views art as an important part of international relations. He describes the use of art in "cultural diplomacy" to implement policy by China, Japan, and the United States. He argues that "virtually every act in the movement of art between cultures has political implications." The book demonstrates how art collecting interacts with the shifting rhythms of international politics and the business cycle. The recent decline in American economic power, with Japan emerging preeminent, was first obvious in the art world where American collectors found themselves unable to compete with their Japanese and Hong Kong counterparts and watched great works begin to move back across the Pacific
The great powers in East Asia, 1953-1960 by Warren I Cohen( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In September 1987 an extraordinary conference was convened under the auspices of the Committee on American-East Asian Relations. For the first time, Chinese and Soviet scholars joined their American, British, and Japanese colleagues to discuss the international relations of East Asia during the postwar era. Never before have scholars from these five nations come together to share their perspectives on such recent -- and still controversial events. Their essays, which are collected in this book, constitute an effort to explain the history of this period that takes into account the different cultural and national experiences of all these countries."--Book jacket
America's failing empire : U.S. foreign relations since the Cold War by Warren I Cohen( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This sharp and authoritative account of American foreign relations analyzes the last 15 years of foreign policy, since the end of the Cold War, in relation to the last 40 years. In 1989, the US emerged as victor from the Cold War struggle. But what did victory mean? In the US, commentators were divided in their views: some feared their nation's eclipse by more successful trading powers or blocs; others were concerned that undoubted military pre-eminence was in effect financed by foreigners." "A little over a decade later, these worries seem remote - but others have replaced them. The attacks on the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001, gave the US a new and unwelcome sense of vulnerability, while the responses of the Bush administration have created grave misgivings in many parts of the world. This study gives readers an overview and understanding of the recent history of US foreign relations from the viewpoint of one of the most respected authorities in the field."--Jacket

The new Cambridge history of American foreign relations( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since their first publication, the four volumes of the Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations have served as the definitive source for the topic, from the colonial period to the Cold War. This entirely new first volume narrates the British North American colonists' preexisting desire for expansion, security, and prosperity, and argues that these desires are both the essence of American foreign relations and the root cause for the creation of the United States. They required the colonists to unite politically, as individual colonies could not dominate North America by themselves. Although ingrained localist sentiments persisted, a strong, durable Union was required for mutual success, thus American nationalism was founded on the idea of allegiance to the Union. Continued tension between the desire for expansion and the fragility of the Union eventually resulted in the Union's collapse and the Civil War"--Publisher's description
