Worldmaking Spenser: Explorations in the Early Modern Age

Portada
University Press of Kentucky
ChinaŐs enormous size, vast population, abundant natural resources, robust economy, and modern military suggest that it will emerge as a great world power. Inside ChinaŐs Grand Strategy: The Perspective from the PeopleŐs Republic offers unique insights from a prominent Chinese scholar about the countryŐs geopolitical ambitions and strategic thinking. Ye Zicheng, professor of political science in the School of International Studies at Peking University, examines ChinaŐs interactions with current world powers as well as its policies toward neighboring countries. Despite claims that repressive domestic policies and an economic slowdown are evidence that the countryŐs efforts toward modernization will fail, Ye points to ChinaŐs inclusion in the G-20 as an indicator of success. Ye compares ChinaŐs global ascension, particularly its emphasis on peace, to the historical experiences of rising European superpowers, providing an insider look at a country poised to become an increasingly prominent international power.
