Overview

China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics: The Shaping of a New Regional Order edited by Mingjiang Li and Dongmin Lee, examines how China's. remarkable economic growth and its proactive diplomatic efforts in recent years have not only shored up its importance in global issues, but also induced a transformation of the strategic dynamics in East Asia, The authors argue that major power relations in the region appear to be driven by some new momentum along with the changing international environment.

The contributors of this edited volume are well-known scholars in their areas of specialty, and the book is divided info five parts. The first discusses China's soft and hard power in East Asia, and the second examines China and the strategic interactions between major powers; this particular section is devoted to discussion on the strategic responses of the major regional powers-the United States, Japan, Korea, India, and ASEAN-to China's rise. The next section focuses on China's strategic approach to East Asian regionalism, Of particular note are China's active leadership role in institution-building efforts, strategic calculations, and preference for an informal approach. The fourth part analyzes the Cross-Taiwan Strait relations and their impact on both China and East Asia and, lastly, the final section of China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics addresses the issue of China and maritime order in East Asia.

This book is a pioneering work. Given that the rise of China has been a prominent issue in politics and economics worldwide, this edited collection is essential for a wide audience of policy-makers, academics, and students alike.

Editorial Reviews

Zheng Yongnian
One of the most serious challenges in today's world is how the existing international order can accommodate the rise of China. This is particularly true in East Asia. A rising China has generated increasingly great dynamics for the region's order. Mingjiang Li and Dongmin Lee have brought together more than one dozen established scholars in the field to examine the key aspects of progress and problems of the evolving international order in East Asia. They highlight how China has developed its own strategy in building an East Asian international order, how it has interacted with other powers such as the USA, India, and ASEAN states in the process, and what major hindrances for the future of the regional order. Scholars and policy makers will find relevant and useful insights and wisdom in this well-researched and well-structured book.
