China on the World Stage

Front Cover
James F. Hoge, James Hoge Jr F
Council on Foreign Relations, 2010 - Political Science
The twenty-first century has been marked by great shifts of power in trade, wealth, and political discourse. China is at the crux of this change, and has quickly become a power of immeasurable influence. However, it is still unclear how China's rise will rebalance the international order. Originally published in Foreign Affairs, the preeminent magazine on foreign policy and international relations, the essays in this book assess the geopolitical consequences of China's rise to power, the development and environmental challenges China faces at home, and its relations with major players like the United States, Russia, and Taiwan. Taken together, the articles portray a global system in deep flux. How individuals and countries adapt is likely to define conflict and peace for the foreseeable future.
