Abstract : The tenor of U. S.-China relations for much of the first year of the administration of President George Bush. Bush was set by a crisis that need not have occurred. How the situation was handed and eventually resolved is instructive. It tells us about beleaguered communist leadership in the buildup to major generational transition (scheduled for late 2002 and early 2003) and the mettle of a democratically elected U. S. government tested early in its tenure by a series of foreign policy crisis and a carefully coordinated set of devastating terrorist strikes against the continental United States.
