The first half of 21st century was the key period of time for China's SocialistConstructions that count for the future of China. China needs a favorable environmentto keep developing and be devoted to constructions. Economy in the region of Asia and Pacific keeps running in the fast traffic laneand increasingly stands out as strategic center. This region is attracting people'sattentions especially China and the US. The end of the Cold War was regarded by the US as an historical opportunity todominate the world. As the only super big country today, the US has never given upits ambition to dominate the world forever. After the Cold War America madeadjustments to its policy for Asia and Pacific in order to be leader of this region andforce this region to be one of the indispensable supports to realize its ambition. Theemergences of all regional big countries are considered threats by America because ofits purpose. China has been growing up in its own peaceful way. Her earnest pursuit is toseek to develop. China's development cannot be separated from the region of Asia andPacific with its national conditions of being still a regional big country by its nationalpower and geographical reason. National interests of China rely on the peripherallyenvironmental harmony. The bilateral relationships between China and the US is definitely critical forboth the two parties and the region of Asia and Pacific because of the differences ofpolicy targets and manners of the two countries, so many levels of bilateraldiscrepancies, as well as limited national power of China. Analysis on the status quoand trend of the bilateral relationships is hardly to be made according to the history IVand current conditions of China and the US only. We must consciously realize that therelationships between China and the US will present a kind of relationships to beestablished on the base of interests gained by the two countries in the region of Asiaand Pacific instead of interactive relationships following the development of theregion of Asia and Pacific. Otherwise it will be difficult to trace the source of thediscrepancies and common understandings leading the relationships between the twocountries. We will be provided a brand new angle of view to search for the essentialpoints of the problems and solutions by putting the relationships between China andthe US into the region of Asia and Pacific where many interests are mixed andregarding the policies of the US for China as particular presentation of its policies inthe region of Asia and Pacific. Based on such a superficial thinking, this thesis consists of three sectionsextending by the logical system as follows: Section 1: Evolvement of American Policies for Asia and Pacific after the ColdWar During the Cold War American policies for Asia and Pacific mainly centered onthe contention for global hegemony with former Soviet Union. The end of the ColdWar turned global strategy of the US from the contention for hegemony with formerSoviet Union to maintenance of status of the dominator in the world. According to thisstrategy America formed it opinions: while the region of Asia and Pacific isincreasingly becoming an important area containing American interests, there aremany actual problems of conflicts with national interests of America, so the USstarted to make adjustments to its policies for Asia and Pacific. In the past 12 years since the end of the Cold War America has experienced three Vgovernments and the central target and overall frame of American policies for Asiaand Pacific have been established, including participating and leading the economiccooperation in the region of East Asia and Pacific; seeking to establish an more opensystem of economy and trade; accomplishing the economic integration in the Pacificarea with efforts; maintaining the military existence...
