This disturbing review of China's growing role around the world explains, among other things, why China's rulers see maintenance of high economic growth as necessary for the survival of their regime and how this influences their relations with other nations (including rogue pariah regimes).

An excellently argued book that is very informative and accessible to anyone even mildly interested in world affairs. Disturbing, but hopeful and constructive. I highly recommend this book to all the US haters and doomsayers who think the US hegemony is the greatest evil of our global system today. It could always be worse...
Robert Blumenfeld is a good reader, though a strange choice for this type of book, I thought. I can imagine him better reading a 19th century adventure novel or something more British or Victorian, but I got used to him eventually and it was fine.
A great beginner's title for those interested in China's approach to international relations today, especially given the opaque and often paradoxical nature of this fascinating and challenging state.
