"China's Rise: Challenges and Opportunities is the latest book from a multi-year project launched by two of the world's preeminent public policy research institutions, the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the Center for Strategic and International Studies. It examines the critical facts and dynamics underpinning China's rise and suggests policy responses that will maximize the opportunities for China's constructive integration into the international community." This new book seeks to take the analysis several important steps further, connecting China's development directly to US and global interests and offering a series of possible policy responses.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The China Balance Sheet Project is a joint undertaking combining the global economic perspective of the Peterson Institute (formerly, Institute for Interntional Economics) with the Center for Strategic & International Studies' foreign policy focus. Here are the culminating analysis and recommendations designed to clarify contemporary China and advise how U.S. "engagement" with China may best move ahead. There's lots here, but clearly presented, with a great chronology. By experts, for experts-and for those who want to know what the experts think. The World Bank's forthcoming China's and India's Challenge to Latin America: Opportunity or Threat? should be of related interest.
