This project explores how the U.S. discursive framework on China results in consistently limited foreign policy approaches, because it engages with a construction of China that exists only in imagination. I trace this modern political discourse from its reestablishment of Sino-American relations under Nixon. Then move on to the Obama administration, which represents an important juncture in China’s rise to global superpower. I then conclude with the short tracing of this discourse and related foreign policy in the Trump and Biden administrations.
