A new book on US-China relations has just come out in Korea titled “Frenemy” (프레너미) which tries to present an assessment of the complex and contradictory nature of US-China relations from a Korean perspective. I do not have a copy, buy I intend to buy one and see what exactly the Korean take is on the paradoxes of US-China cooperation and confrontation.
The Cover of “Frenemy” reads:
“In international relations there is no permanent friend or permanent enemy.
What will be Korea’s new compass: The United States or China?”
Read about the desires of the United States and China as revealed in the THAAD crisis.”
The book is authored by Lee Woo-tak (이우탁) of Yonhap News and Park Hanjin (박한진) of KOTRA
