Center for America China Partnership
John Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min founded the Center for America China Partnership in 2005 and incorporated the America China Partnership Foundation in New York in 2007. They are the author and co-author of the America-China Partnership Book Series. In 2009 the official media of the Chinese government, China Daily, named the Center “the first American think tank to combine and integrate American and Chinese perspectives providing a complete answer for America and China’s success in the 21st century.” The Chinese government’s National Development and Reform Commission and the Beijing Foreign Studies University, which has produced 90% of China’s diplomats, signed Memoranda of Cooperation with the Center and Foundation to implement the “New School of US-China Partnership” in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
At the request of the Director General of the Institute of American Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min wrote and delivered A White Paper for the Presidents of America and China summarizing their America-China Partnership Book Series and the “New School of US-China Relations”, which their books created. The White Paper was used in President Hu’s preparations for negotiations with President Obama in 2009. The text of A White Paper for the Presidents of America and China is available at the Center for America China Partnership’s website.
Proposed US China Grand Strategy Agreement
In 2010 Milligan-Whyte, Dai Min, and Dr. Thomas P.M. Barnett, respectively the Chairman, President, and Executive Vice President of the Center for America China Partnership, drafted a Proposed China US Grand Strategy Agreement between President Hu and President Obama with input and support from China’s: Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Former UN Ambassador, Former U.S. Ambassador, Former Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the PLA, Former Military Attaché to North Korea and Israel, Former Vice Minister of Commerce, China's Central Party School Institute of International Strategic Studies, Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs, China Center for International Economic Exchanges, China Institute For International Strategic Studies, China Foundation for International & Strategic Studies, Boao Forum, and State Council’s China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, which prepares classified briefing documents for China's President, Premier and State Councilors. Footage of the meetings is available online.
The Proposed US China Grand Strategy Agreement's text was published in Foreign Affairs and introduced in Dai Min and Milligan-Whyte’s columns in People's Daily Online in English and in China Daily Online in Mandarin and in Dr. Thomas P.M. Barnett’s column in World Politics Review.

The New School of US China Relations
The first two books in the America China Partnership Series, China & America’s Emerging Partnership: A New Realistic Perspective and New China Business Strategies: Chinese & American Companies as Global Partners, were recognized by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, China Daily and People’s Daily as creating a “New School of US China Relations providing a complete answer for America and China's success in the 21st century”, which was announced at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the first Global Think Tank Summit and in Foreign Affairs magazine in 2009.
China-US Relations in the Obama Administration: Facing Shared Challenges was translated into Mandarin and published in China by the Central Party School. The book's original English title, "China and America's Leadership in Peaceful Coexistence", was changed to match the Chinese title, 《致奥巴马总统和胡锦涛主席的外交关系白皮书》, given in Mandarin by the Central Party School. In this book, Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min explain the convergence of US and China's security needs, the "New School of US-China Relations" perspectives and the advantages for both the US and China in aligning their national security if the US reciprocates China's peaceful coexistence policies.
The New School of the Human Extinction Challenge
In the America-China Partnership Book Series, Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min also present strategies for preventing human extinction. In China & America’s Responsibilities in Mankind’s Future, published in English in 2010, which the Central Party School has also translated into Mandarin for publication in China, they pioneered two other new research areas which they term the “New School of the Human Extinction Challenge” and the “New School of the Philosophy, Genetics and Physics of Moral Authority.” They assert that mankind’s fundamental 21st century foreign policy, defense strategy and scientific research issue is discovering how to prevent human extinction in what they term "The Age of Species Lethal Weapons and Science". They reject Samuel Huntington’s contention in The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order that the clash of civilizations is inevitable. They assert that mankind has no future in clash of civilization because of the power of 21st century weapons, technology and science and that collaboration of civilizations is essential if mankind is to prevent its extinction.
The New School of the Philosophy, Genetics and Physics of Moral Authority
Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min call for the study of human beings as phenomenon of physics because the laws of physics are the only laws that all human beings involuntarily obey. They assert that human conflict and collaboration can be better managed when understood as phenomena of physics. They assert that to discover defense systems able to prevent human extinction and solutions to the inconsistencies in what is currently believed about the laws of physics it is necessary to study both together as interrelated subjects and to understand persons exhibiting “moral authority” as phenomena of physics.
In China & America's Responsibilities in Mankind's Future they assert that the thought and behavior processes of human beings which evolved over billions of years prior to the Age of Species Lethal Weapons and Science is in the process of leading to the human gene pool's extinction. They view genetic engineering of the human gene pool as urgent, essential and justified in order to prevent its extinction. They also assert that medicine is fundamentally a phenomenon of physics and that few medical doctors also have doctorates in physics. In a People's Daily Online article, "How to reduce America's budget by 45%", they called for the creation of research, teaching and treatment hospitals that combine expertise in genetic engineering, theoretic and experimental physics, American, Chinese and stem cell medicine and the comparative analysis of the cost, effectiveness and painfulness of each of those treatment modalities alone or in combination to make 21st century health care globally more effective and less costly and painful. They have proposed that the prototype of such research, educational and clinical hospitals be created in Jilin Province, China.
Human Extinction Challenge Solution Trust
Milligan-Whyte and Dai Min are respectively the chairman and president of the Human Extinction Challenge Trust called for in their books which focuses a global team of the species’ most able minds in the many areas of research needed to successfully understand human beings and "moral authority" as a phenomenon of physics and thus learn how to control human behavior so extinction can be prevented.
