Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this book brings together in one place essays on those aspects of the expanding People's Republic of China (PRC) engagement with the region relevant to scholars who study issues of defense and security in Latin America, including chapters on how engagement with the PRC is impacting political dynamics within and between states in the region; the question of Chinese "soft power"; activities by Chinese companies and the Chinese government in strategic technology sectors; military-to-military engagement; emerging trans-Pacific organized crime ties; and the question of whether the web of relationships between the US, the PRC, and the countries in the region should be characterized as a "strategic triangle." Although versions of many of these works have been published previously, the present volume updates, extends, and integrates them, as well as provides new material. The objective of this work is not to argue whether PRC engagement with Latin America is, on balance, positive or negative, but rather to serve as a reference for scholars and practitioners interested in both the security and defense of Latin America and the impact of the "rise of China" on the global order more broadly.

Chapter One - Introduction * Chapter Two - The Impact of China on the Region * Chapter Three - The Question of Chinese Soft Power * Chapter Four - Chinese Commercial Activities in Strategic Sectors * Chapter Five - The PRC-Latin America Military Relationship * Chapter Six - China-Latin America Organized Crime Ties * Chapter Seven - A "Strategic Triangle" between the PRC, the US, and Latin America? * Chapter Eight - The Way Forward

With the publication of this volume, the William J. Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies presents the first of the Perry Papers, a series of stimulating thought pieces on timely security and defense topics of global proportions from a regional perspective. The emergence of China as a prominent actor in the Western Hemisphere has given rise to many different interpretations and prescriptions. The Perry Center inaugurates this new series with an insightful and wide-reaching collection of studies by Dr. R. Evan Ellis, focusing on China's growing influence and interaction in the Western Hemisphere and what it means for the future geopolitics of our region. In The Strategic Dimension of Chinese Engagement with Latin America, Dr. Ellis, one of the foremost experts on China and Latin America and a professor of National Security at the Perry Center, provides in-depth analyses of a variety of aspects of China's ventures in the hemisphere.
