  • Résumé

    Since the end of the Cold War, the rise of China has probably been one of the most considered issues in the American Discipline of International Relations (IR). Transformations of the long-standing international system and emerging concerns about China have given rise to a large scholarly consensus regarding the threatening nature of China as an emerging power. Based on this contention, our analysis elaborates a sociological history of the perceptions of China in American thought on world politics. From the "yellow peril" (which will be conceptualized as a political myth) to contemporary perceptions of China through the lenses of "anarchy" ruling international relations, academic discourses on China have evolved in tune with political and scientific struggles. We argue, in this dissertation, that contemporary conceptualizations of China in American scholarly works in IR, far from being the product of pure scientific reason, are mainly fashioned by political history and power relations.
