This updated and expanded new edition of Chinese Foreign Policy examines the patterns of engagement with various domestic and international actors that have shaped Beijing’s foreign policy since the Cold War. It explores a series of ongoing questions and trends, as well as offering an in-depth look at the key areas of China’s modern global relations.
Bringing together the many different facets of China’s foreign interests, the volume presents a comprehensive overview of the country’s international affairs, covering such key issues as:
-the rise of globalisation, international financial uncertainty, and China’s economic power
-the country’s bilateral and multilateral approaches to international problem-solving
-China’s engagement in various regional and international regimes
-modern strategic challenges, including terrorism and economic security
-the question of shifting American power
-Beijing’s changing political, strategic and economic linkages with the developed and developing world.
Chinese Foreign Policy will be of great interest to upper-level students of Chinese international relations, Asian politics, comparative foreign policy and international relations, as well as professionals interested in China’s changing place in the global system.
