Abstract: The Obama administration seeks to develop constructive cooperation with China and, by late 2011, had developed an integrated regional strategy in Asia to bring this about. But there are serious questions about the sustainability of this strategy and its likely effectiveness. Ultimately, domestic developments in both China and the US will play a large role in their future relationship.
