1). According to Glaser, what are the standard liberal and realist views about the rise of China?

Glaser recommends that the US should “reduce its commitment to Taiwan.” He says this because he believes that if the US defends Taiwan, US and China relations could move downhill very quickly. He says that the US should back away from Taiwan in a slow manner because if they do it to quick, there could be bad relations between the US and Taiwan. He says that the US should have time to back away because China and Taiwan have improved their relations
