"Based on the authors' intimate knowledge of the changing dynamics in China's society, this book shows the picture of a government that is learning fast in the field of international communication, and that is equally confronted with fundamental soft power challenges. This collection of essays greatly improves our understanding of China's public diplomacy as a project under construction." - Jan Melissen, Head of the Diplomatic Studies Programme at the Clingendael Institute of International Relations, The Netherlands, Professor of Diplomacy at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, and Co-Editor of The Hague Journal of Diplomacy
