This chapter examines the relevance of Chinese nationalism in U.S.–China relations in the twenty-first century. It attempts to answer the pressing question of what China policy America should pursue at the onset of the twenty-first century. The chapter highlights the existence of conflicts of material interests in U.S.–China relations today, and argues that until China and America learn to affirm, rather than threaten, each other's national identities, their mutual benefit from a stable East Asia will not ensure peace in the twenty-first century.

Keywords: Chinese nationalism; U.S.–China relations; material interest; national identities; East Asia
