This introductory chapter provides an overview of bilateral relations between the United States and China in Central Asia. It was only after September 11, 2001, when the United States began using Central Asia as a transit route to Afghanistan, did greater numbers of Americans learn about air bases and truck routes in Central Asia. Also, it was only then that Americans became more aware of Islamist networks spreading from the Middle East and Afghanistan into Central Asia. Simultaneously with the rise of Islamist groups came the rise of China. These two seemingly unrelated historical developments provided a new platform for the interplay of the United States and China in Central Asia.

Keywords:   United States, China, Central Asia, Afghanistan, Islamist groups, Middle East
