Overview


“ . . . [The] quality of the contributors and the editor’s choice of essay topics make for a sophisticated volume for undergraduate and graduate students and some professional policy analysts.”—Asian Affairs
“This is a substantive contribution to the literature on Chinese foreign policy. . . . The volume is by far the best and most comprehensive study currently available on the ways in which the processes of foreign policy-making have been transformed in China during the reform period. It explains better than any previous work the complexities of the impact of economic interdependence on foreign relations. It exhibits all the strengths and few of the weaknesses of approaches to foreign policy that place most stress on decision-making processes. It deserves careful reading by students and practitioners alike.”—International Affairs

"The best book to date on how Chinese foreign and security policy is made. . . . This is an informative and useful book. Lampton's introductory chapter could fruitfully be read by anyone interested in contemporary international relations or foreign policy making. . . . The book as a whole will be required reading for specialists in the field of contemporary China and international relations in Asia."—International Journal

"This 12-chapter compendium is the culmination of years of fruitful work by a number of the best specialists in the field of Chinese foreign and security policy. . . . The result is a volume of great use to scholars and practitioners alike. . . . [Lampton's] introductory chapter is exemplary, well written and well organized, giving a clear sense of how the subsequent chapters fit into the broad purpose and scope of the book. He also provides perspective analytical frameworks for judging the overall importance of recent trends in Chinese foreign and security policymaking."—The China Journal

"The book is noteworthy in that all of the analysts are experts in their respective fields and their contributions reflect their professionalism and expertise. In other words, there isn't a dud in the book."—Political Science Quarterly

Booknews
Provides a unique look at changes in Chinese foreign and security policy during the reform era of the late 1970s, and discusses the implications of those changes for China's future behavior on the international stage. Scholars who undertook extensive field research in the People's Republic of China, South Korea, and Taiwan offer an in-depth account of how Chinese foreign and security policy is formulated and implemented. Discussion encompasses bureaucratic politics, changing elite views and skills, the domestic agenda, and globalization and multilateral regimes. Lampton is director of the China Studies Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
