From the Publisher“At last, there is a book that addresses China’s craving for status in foreign policy that does not ignore the larger literature. In fact, Yong Deng not only places his examination of China’s quest for international respect firmly within international relations theory, he also grounds his approach in the relevant literature from psychology and sociology. As a result, China’s fixation with status becomes much more comprehensible—and can be understood more as a distinctive attribute rather than a uniquely Chinese characteristic only intelligible on its own terms…Scholars and practitioners alike can benefit greatly from this timely and thoughtful treatment of contemporary Chinese foreign policy.

“Yong Deng’s volume, thereby, offers a much needed and an extremely erudite conceptual analysis of China’s emerging international agency. It also provides a comprehensive reconsideration of Beijing’s external affairs from the point of view of International Relations theory…The volume offers a wealth of solid knowledge and sharp insights on the evolution, patterns and practices of China’s foreign policy…To the buffs of Chinese foreign policy, this insightful account offers a superbly researched study of Beijing’s international agency. Moreover, Deng’s study of China’s status politics makes available a rare glimpse into the normative underpinnings of the country’s external affairs.”
