Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean of the Woodrow Wilson School, has authored the editorial "Fear of an Angry Dragon," for the December 15 edition of Newsweek magazine. With the U.S. in a recession and China's economy reliant on exports, Slaughter writes that "it makes sense that Beijing is worried about conditions in the United States. But the United States should be equally worried about China."
Thomas Christensen, a Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School, speaks from experience when he teaches students about government service and foreign policy -- after extensive consulting for the government, he spent the past two years serving at the U.S. State Department as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, with responsibility for policy toward China, Taiwan, and Mongolia.
Tom Christensen visits the United States Military Academy at West Point to speak to a Chinese Politics class on relations between Mainland China and Taiwan, and then discusses U.S. Global Strategy in a New Administration at the faculty seminar alongside Ambassador Robert Hutchings.
