Description: As China emerges as the new economical powerhouse and claims its voice as a new political superpower next to the United States, the relation between the U.S. and China wavers between admiration and rivalry. In the emerging new world order, the perception by common people of these two powers is driven by emotions. This situation is similar to the West’s cold war concept of the “communist enemy” or the “capitalist enemy” and the strategies of deterrence, appeasement and detainment. The U.S. and China are emotionally perceived with fear or admiration both in their respective countries and abroad. Interdisciplinary scientific scholarship attempts to objectify the discussion by examining the dimensions and exploring the reasons for these tensions.
