International Relations of China

Eight Volume Set
Edited by:

November 2014 | 2 376 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

To say that the rise of China has captured the popular attention is something of an understatement. Hardly a day goes by without the publication of a new study that confidently predicts China’s future – be that a focus on internal challenges and potential collapse, or China’s rise to inevitable global dominance. The aim of this eight-volume collection is to provide, in a single resource, an overarching view of the totality of China’s place in the world.

 In this new major work, the international team of editors have created a carefully balanced collection of seminal publications from leading scholars from both inside and outside of China, introduced by a newly-written chapter contextualizing the diverse perspectives on China’s changing global role they represent.

Volume One: Theoretical Perspectives

Volume Two: Making Foreign Policy

Volume Three: China and “Traditional” Partners – the Developed World and (South)East Asia

Volume Four: China and the Developing World

Volume Five: National Security and Territorial Issues

Volume Six: China and the Global Economy

Volume Seven: Global Governance

Volume Eight: China Challenges and Global Issues
