Four credits

The purpose of this course is to provide students with an understanding of contemporary Chinese grand strategy. The course examines traditional Chinese strategic culture and statecraft, including the classic work of Sun Tzu. The emergence of a new Chinese grand strategy in the post-Mao, post-Soviet era is revealed through an analysis of Chinese foreign and military policy and China's military buildup. China's strategy toward its neighbors, the United States, and the rest of the world is examined. Finally, China's current direction, its future strategic options, and possible U.S. responses are discussed.
