Description

China's enormous size, vast population, abundant natural resources, robust economy, and modern military suggest that it will emerge as a great world power. This book offers unique insights about the country's geopolitical ambitions and strategic thinking. The book examines China's interactions with current world powers as well as its policies toward neighboring countries. Despite claims that repressive domestic policies and an economic slowdown are evidence that the country's efforts toward modernization will fail, the book points to China's inclusion in the G-20 as an indicator of success. It compares China's global ascension, particularly its emphasis on peace, to the historical experiences of rising European superpowers, providing an insider look at a country poised to become an increasingly prominent international power.
