This is an introductory module to briefly discuss how China has changed since Xi Jinping came to power and how this change has led to the reorientation of America’s China policy from “engagement” to “competition.” It will first introduce Xi Jinping’s Third Revolution following Mao Zedong’s First Revolution and Deng Xiaoping’s Second Revolution, and then explain why Xi has launched this revolution. It is followed by explaining how this change is in conflict with the assumption of America’s “engagement policy.” And then we talk about how the Trump and Biden administrations’ have responded to this conflict. Finally, we will discuss whether the strategic competition between the U.S. and China will evolve into a new cold war.
