The China Card: Playing Politics with Sino-American Relations Peter Trubowitz and Jungkun Seo examine how and when China emerged as a “hot button” issue in American politics. They show that the politicization of Sino-American relations has had as much to do with geopolitical considerations as well as electoral strategizing in the United States.

Candidate Selection Process
With the 2014 Congressional elections approaching, the Academy of Political Science and Political Science Quarterly present an online symposium focused on the candidate selection process. The scope of the articles included in the symposium is threefold: review the reasons why candidate recruiting is so critical to the success of political parties; evaluate how candidates assess personal and political choices and the way in which ambition endures over time; and, examine how the changing campaign finance landscape affects the resources available to those who consider running for political office.
