China and India are both emerging powers after the Cold War, but theperception of the United States towards these two states are quite different. Why theUnited States has different perceptions toward China and India? Whether theperception modal of the U.S. toward China and India reflects the perception modaltoward rising powers? This paper explores the reason why the U.S discriminatebetween China and India in perception by analyzing the archives of the Americangovernments, researches of some most renowned institutions and comments of someofficials. First of all, an angle should be made by hegemony to a rising power: arevisionist state and a status quo state. Secondly, the standards of the Classificationare as follows: global standards: international structure, international institutions andinternational organizations;national standards: national power, national intentions andnational actions. Finally, the perception towards China and India will be analyzedwith the connection to the archives and researches. With regard to the perceptiontowards China, the United States is divided into two schools, namely the“Containment School” and the “Engagement School”. The former consider China’sRise as a threat, arguing take measures to contain China, while the latter believe theU.S should cooperate with China and make efforts to make China into theinternational system built by the U.S., although they can’t predict the future of China.Contrary to China, the perception toward India has reached a consensus that India is astatus quo state. This paper sides with the point that the reason why the United Stateshas different perceptions toward China and India is that the two standards havedifferent proportions in analyzing the perception by the U.S. The U.S. attaches muchmore importance to the national standards.
