Trade is the focus of this week's USC U.S.-China Institute newsletter. US officials allege Chinese infractions and the Chinese government says it punished Google for its ongoing failure to police its search results. Chinese oil consumption has risen dramatically and the nation is seeking additional resources overseas. And, as always, Talking Points includes a comprehensive list of China-related events across North America.

In his book, journalist Matt Sheehan chronicles the real people who are making these connections.
