of relations is what the U.S. sees as Chinas dismal record on human rights. Despite this, the paper argues that China is more friend than foe to the U.S. Discussion
Conventional wisdom says that much of the credit for the normalization of relations between the U.S. and China goes to President Nixon, who, despite being one of our worst presidents,
did in fact deserve credit for taking the initiative in opening relations between the two countries. Certainly there is some truth in this, as Nixon is still recognized as one
of the architects of the U.S./China structure that exists today. But giving all the credit to Nixon is to cut China out of the equation completely, and that gives only
a partial picture of the reality. One of the things that is difficult for Americans to grasp is the great age of the Chinese civilization. China was flourishing when the
U.S. was at its most primitive and from the perspective of the Chinese, "the relationship has been extremely brief" (Spence, 2005, p. 44). In fact, it wasnt until the reign
of Emperor Qianlong of the last Chinese dynasty that relations were established and when they were, "Americans sometimes behaved admirably. Other times, they were a nuisance, or worse, a menace"
(Spence, 2005, p. 44). Ones opinion of American actions depends on perspective: the U.S. can be seen as benevolent "in its development of Chinese hospitals and modern medicine"; on the
other hand, its behavior is destructive when one considers that it disseminated "partisan religious tracks by American evangelists to such people as the leader of the Taiping Rebellion" (Spence, 2005,
p. 44). Or it can be seen as ambivalent, when in the 1900s U.S. leaders "urged the Chinese toward a more republican form of government, which quickly descended into warlordism"
