Overview

"With China now South Korea's largest trading partner and destination for foreign investment and tourism, what are the implications for politics and security in East Asia?" In China's Rise and the Two Koreas, Scott Snyder explores the transformation of the Sino-South Korean relationship since the early 1990s, assessing the strategic significance of recent developments in China's relationship with both North and South Korea as well as the likely consequences of those developments for US and Japanese influence in the region. His meticulous study lends important context to critical debates regarding China's foreign policy, Northeast Asian security, and international relations more broadly.
