No man - or country - is an island, and China's emergence over the past two centuries was not solely the product of internal actions. In this ground-breaking study, David Petriello argues that out of all the catalyzing influences in the creation of modern China, none was more vital than the Republican Party. From the 1780s to today, the various incarnations of this American political party have worked to create the conditions that allowed for China to once again become a world power.
