This project was undertaken by Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations, the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the Monitor Group.
Will a rising China be a threat to its neighbors, like Germany in 1914? Or a benign power that will exercise influence through peaceful means, as China is purported to have done in its imperial past?

Beginning in 2014, The Kissinger Institute on China and the United States (KICUS) will issue a monthly newsletter on U.S.-China relations. It is written for supporters in the Washington region, across the country, and around the world who are interested in Sino-American relations but are unable to commit hours each day to following them.
