Distinguished authors consider the likelihood of conflict and peaceful accommodation as China grows ever stronger. They look at the changing position of China “from the inside”: How do Chinese policymakers evaluate the contemporary international order and what are the regional and global implications of that worldview? The authors also address the implications of China's increasing power for Chinese policymaking and for the foreign policies of Korea, Japan, and the United States.
"A focused and cohesive book. . . . Careful consideration is given to a wide range of international relations theories as they apply to China's growing power in the 21st century. The theories are so well explored that the book goes beyond being a China study; it can be recommended . . . more broadly as a political and international relations theory book. . . . In addition to the US scholars, four contributing authors are Chinese, one is Korean, and one Japanese. Thus, a range of perspectives is provided. This reviewer has not seen a more sophisticated book on China's rise to power."-Choice, May 2009
