    Join BPIA for a book launch of Earl Carr's 

    From Trump to Biden and Beyond: Reimagining US-China Relations

    A unique and fascinating set of essays from global scholars, From Trump to Biden forces the reader to think in new ways about the U.S.-China relationship and how the Biden administration can best advance U.S. interests in the face of a more powerful and assertive China.” – Elizabeth Economy, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution

    The last four years have seen significant damage in US-China relations that will take years to rebuild. Early signs within the Biden Administration indicate that an expeditious return to strong Sino-US ties is premature at best. To fully address these challenges and regain credibility both at home and abroad, the Biden team will need to recalibrate a new set of values, objectives, and thinking in redefining the most important bilateral relationship in the world. This edited book volume seeks to reimagine US-China relations, provide innovative policy analysis, and utilizes a truly multidisciplinary approach coupled with both first and second-hand quantitative data, infographics, geopolitical analysis, and perspectives from leading experts. More importantly, this book project provides a nuanced perspective highlighting the central issues that will define America and China both now and well into the future. Whether you are a policy-maker, business professional, academic, established practitioner, or a casual observer, this impressive volume provides exceptional insight on issues like technology, trade, cross-Strait relations, security & alliances in East Asia, geopolitics, climate change, and much more.
