9780742528918: China Rising: Power and Motivation in Chinese Foreign Policy (Asia in World Politics)

Despite its increasingly secure place in the world, the People's Republic of China remains dissatisfied with its global status. Its growing material power has simultaneously led to both greater influence and unsettling questions about its international intentions. China also has found itself in a constant struggle to balance its aspirations abroad with a daunting domestic agenda. This authoritative book provides a unique exploration of the complex and dynamic motivations behind Beijing's foreign policy. The authors focus on China's choices and calculations on issues such as the ruling Communist party-regime's interests, international status and image, nationalism, Taiwan, human rights, globalization, U.S. hegemony, international institutions, and the war on terrorism. Taken together, the chapters offer a comprehensive diagnosis of the emerging paradigms in Chinese foreign policy, illuminating especially China's struggle to engineer and manage its rise in light of the opportunities and perils inherent in the post-cold war and post-9/11 world.

About the Author:

Yong Deng is associate professor in the Department of Political Science at the U.S. Naval Academy. Fei-Ling Wang is associate professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Review:

The authors provide an incisive and informative update on Chinese foreign policy in the aftermath of 9/11, which furthered reforms already under way in Beijing's approach to world affairs in general and the U.S. in particular. (Allen S. Whiting, University of Arizona)

Analyzing the complex patterns in Chinese foreign policy, this collection tries to look into the motivational structure behind China's foreign policy choices, which includes Beijing's concerns for its international status, domestic stability and growth, and antiterrorism. The two able editors, Deng and Wang, assembled a group of talented authors who explored issues raising from China's national image and Chinese nationalism to China's multilateral diplomacy, and from China's U.S. policy to its policy towards Taiwan....Highly recommended. Upper division undergraduates and above. (X. Hu, Clemson University CHOICE)

About half of the contributors to the Yong Deng and Fei-Ling Wang volume were Chinese citizens before becoming professors at American universities and thus are sensitive to what motivates Chinese foreign policy. . . . There are insightful contributions about how features of Chinese nationalism affect foreign policy and how China has moved beyond its traditional distrust of multilateral diplomacy. (Foreign Affairs)

The collection of papers is well worth reading, for the book brings together a number of leading scholars and their contributions do much to make sense of Beijing's motives. Moreover, they base much of their work on a careful reading of Chinese sources, opening a much-needed window into the though processes of Chinese leaders and academics for those who cannot read such material in its original language....The authors do an admirable job in cutting to the heart of key issues. (Colin Green, York University)

China Rising is a welcome addition to the already large body of literature on the topic. ... the authors do an admirable job in cutting to the heart of the key issue. (Colin Green, York Univeristy, Toronto, ON Pacific Affairs)

The two able editors, Deng and Wang, assembled a group of talented authors who explored issues ranging from China's national image and Chinese nationalism to China's multilateral diplomacy, and from China's U.S. policy to its policy toward Taiwan. The book also includes chapters examining the motivation driving China's human rights diplomacy, China's antiterrorism policy, and its general foreign policy orientation in the age of globalization. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

A basic and comprehensive review of contemporary Chinese foreign policy―I found it very helpful to my undergraduate students. (Winberg Chai, University of Wyoming)
