Description

The report examines the current debate in the United States over proposals
for increased U.S. military sales to China. The study first examines the background
of U.S.-China security ties since the Nixon Administration, and then
sets forth the parameters of the current debate by noting a number of issues
concerning U.S. military transfers to China on which all sides generally agree.
It shows that Americans familiar with the issue tend to identify with different
groups of opinion or "schools of thought" on the question of U.S. military
transfers to China, and provides a detailed pro-con analysis of the issue. It
concludes by noting cross pressures that are likely to greet U.S. policy makers
as they grapple with this issue in the months ahead and offers an assessment
of four policy options of possible use by U.S. policymakers.
