The Comparison Research on the Cultural Soft Power Between China and the US

Dan LIN, Lin LI


This paper divides the soft power into three components: the attraction to lead other countries to imitate; the creation to develop the culture; the radiometric force to express the opinions. Based on the three parts, we do research on the development of the soft power between the two countries and propose some productive suggestions for the foundation and the strategy of the soft power in China.

Key words: Cultural soft power; China and the US; Evaluation System
