Displaying new assertiveness and prominence, China under President Xi Jinping is rightly considered an emerging superpower backed by growing economic and impressive military strength. But this is only part of the story of Chinas rise. As Robert G. Sutter shows in this meticulous and balanced assessment, the record of twists and turns in Chinese foreign relations since the end of the Cold War highlights a very different perspective. Domestic problems, nationalism, and security concerns continue to preoccupy Beijing, complicating Chinas influence and innovations in foreign affairs. On the international front, the actions of Chinas neighbors and the United States and Chinas growing dependence on the world economy complicate and constrain as well as enhance Chinas advance to international prominence.
Providing a comprehensive introduction to Chinese foreign relations, Sutter shows China exerting growing influence in world affairs but remaining far from dominant. Facing numerous contradictions and tradeoffs, Chinese leaderseven the self-assured Xi Jinpingavoid major confrontations with powerful competitors and eschew the costly commitments associated with regional and global leadership.
