Series Palgrave Studies in International Relations

At the end of the Cold War, commentators were pondering how far Western ideas would spread in an international environment defined by 'the end of history'. Today, the debate seems to be how far Chinese ideas will reach. This innovative edited volume goes beyond the conventional focus on China's bilateral relations, in a bid to identify the extent to which China's nascent rise has provoked fresh geo-strategic and intellectual shifts within Asia.

Offering a unique discussion of the evolution of Chinese schools of International Relations and the reactions of China's Asian partners to the practices of its international interactions, the contributors to this volume seek to explain and understand the relational nature of China's international outreach in the full spectrum of its unabridged complexity, contingency, and contradictions.

Niv Horesh is Reader in Chinese Studies at the University of Nottingham, UK and Associate Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. He researches the economic history of China, China in world history, the socio-economic history of Shanghai, and eighteenth and nineteenth-century depictions of East Asia.

Emilian Kavalski is Associate Professor at the Australian Catholic University, Sydney and book series editor of 'Rethinking Asia and International Relations'. His research explores the security governance of complexity, the interactions between the EU, China, and India in Central Asia, and the contributions of complexity thinking to IR theory.
