  • Abstract " Red Team " and " Blue Team " is a popular classification system for American-China experts. However, this Red-Blue division has been questioned in recent years. The purpose of this study is to examine the conception of China adopted by the leading American China expert, David Shambaugh, who is usually considered as a member of Red Team. It then critically evaluates the Red-Blue division. This thesis concludes that the impression that Shanbaugh is Red Team does not hold well. Past readers cite his approval of the Communist Party's strength but fail to attend to his qualification. This thesis further compares Shambaugh's perspective with other presumably Red Team scholars and traces their different views on same issues. Even where they draw similar conclusions, they rely on different inferential processes.
