Abstract :
The rise of China from a poor, stagnant country to a significant economic power within only 28 years is often described by analysts as one of the greatest economic success stories in modern times. If the economy continues to grow at such astronomical levels, China will be in a position to surpass the United States in the next few decades. China's rise has had an immediate impact on every aspect of the united states, both in opportunities and challenges. Rising powers want to gain more authority in the global system, and declining countries are afraid of losing their dominant position. Thus, conflict, even a war, between a rising power and a declining power is likely to happen. In this sense, Westerners worry that historical tragedies will repeat between the United States and China. On the other hand, The nature of relations between the United States and China is critically important for the future of the international system. China and the United States have just experienced political transitions that allow the leaders of both countries to focus on bilateral relations free from the pressures of domestic political campaigns. US-China relations will be dealt with in the context of a potential global power transition in the future. Dealing with a rising China is probably the most serious foreign policy challenge for the United States in the twenty-first Century. Debates rage over whether there is a “China threat,” how to measure China’s military and economic power, and what is the best strategy to approach China.
