What People are Saying About This

Qingmin Zhang

"A superior analysis of a topic of tremendous importance to scholars and policy makers alike."

David Shambaugh

"Rather than dismissing the principle of (peaceful) coexistence as either propaganda or a necessary policy of a weak power, Liselotte Odgaard unravels the concept as the driving strategy behind China's foreign and national security policy and shows how it has been successful in both protecting and progressively maximizing China's interests."
