Overview

This volume examines a series of complex debates surrounding the role of China’s historical ideals in shaping its foreign policy. Presenting and analyzing the works of key Chinese philosophers and prominent international relations theorists, the contributors—prestigious scholars from China, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France—examine how an idealized version of China’s imperial past now inspires a new generation of Chinese scholars and policymakers and their plans for China’s future.

Although a growing number of books treat China’s rise and world view, China Orders the World brings together Chinese and Western scholars in a uniquely detailed and nuanced exploration of how traditional Chinese culture is being remolded into a "Chinese-style" world order for the twenty-first century.
