The economic growth of China, initially started in the late 1970s with domestic and rural reforms, has been increasingly driven by China's industrialization and integration into regional and global markets. The growth and integration of China, however, has exposed China's closest neighbors and even more remote countries to its various (previously internal) problems, and the lagging political openness of China has often negatively impacted on cooperation with other countries in dealing with these problems (i.e. trans-border pollutions, epidemics, illegal migration, organized crime, financial management, etc.). This book integrates geopolitical and domestic political analysis of China with a broad set of transnational security issues, and includes a diversity of regional views. In doing so, it explores further than the dichotomous debate between the American realists and liberals, adding finesse to the often simplified discussions on how to deal with the rising China.
