Vol. 2 No. 3 (2007)
This edition of the Journal covers a variety of topics, several of which are current hot issues and several of which are introductory efforts that we will continue to cover in subsequent issues. The first article tackles an issue of growing importance; the relationships between China and Africa; particularly trade that is developing between China and the 53 individual African countries. As a demonstration of our continuing interest in this issue we plan to conduct a one day seminar on this topic in the spring 2008 in Washington DC at one of the local universities. We follow this up with an article on US – India relations which considers the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) as a third party in these matters. The third article is an impressionistic piece regarding public administration scholarship in Northwestern China, an area not often visited by American scholars. This article is noteworthy because it is written by David Rosenbloom America’s foremost public administration scholar.
