This fully revised and updated text introduces students to China’s foreign policy, past and present, and the factors that may influence the country’s future policy agenda. Exploring the new dynamics of China’s regional and international roles, the authors outline the political, security, economic, and social issues the country faces in the emerging twenty-first century.
An ideal, thoughtfully crafted textbook, each chapter of China in World Politics familiarizes students with the Chinese framework for analyzing the issues in question. Alternate policy choices are suggested, along with supporting data for each course of action. Discussion and essay questions, as well as suggested readings and a bibliography of internet resources, are also included.
Praise for the first edition Faust and Kornberg’s book is a welcome addition to a field crowded by much more narrow and less balanced works ... provides an accessible guide to negotiating the difficult terrain of Chinese foreign policy.
A comprehensive review of the past, present, and future foreign relations of China.
