Product description


This book could not be more timely. It is a must not only for China-watchers the world over but for everyone who wants to understand the potential shape of the post-crunch world order. Focussed on the past and emerging structure of China's international relations, it takes on conventional thinking on the left and right alike. If you buy no other book on China, it has to be this one. (Alan Freeman, principal economist, GLA Economics, the Mayor of London's Economic Analysis Unit, and author of The Benn Heresy, a biography of the politician Tony Benn.)

The Western left has largely ignored one of the most profound geopolitical shifts of the last 20 years: China's new foreign policy. Jenny Clegg's new book [provides] a context for understanding China's multilateral initiatives, its nuanced approach to the United States and other large powers, and the foreign policy implications of its startling economic growth. ... Clegg's book is indispensable. (John Feffer, Co-Director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies and author of Power Trip: Unilateralism and Global Strategy After September 11 (2006) and North Korea, South Korea: U.S. Policy and the Korean Peninsula (2003).)


China is fast emerging as a powerful player on the world stage. This book takes a closer look at the country's stance on a range of global issues, arguing that its multipolar diplomacy offers a concrete strategy to constrain the US pursuit of unipolar primacy. Many people assume that China will follow an imperialistic strategy and therefore be in direct conflict with the American empire in a quest for world domination. Jenny Clegg shows that China is in fact taking a multilateral approach, offering real assistance to developing countries and helping to build the institutions required to run a multipolar world. Without glossing over China's own internal difficulties, this book argues that its international consensus-building strategy could lead to a more peaceful and equitable world.This book offers a refreshing perspective on China that will be of great value to those interested in the big political questions of how to tackle war and imperialism, globalisation and development as well as to undergraduate students of politics, economics and international relations.
