Reviews

“All of the authors contributing to this volume offer intelligent analysis of recent developments, ongoing challenges, and likely future directions as China continues its rise within the global community. The essays are remarkably coherent and complimentary, collectively providing a comprehensive assessment of China’s economic, military, normative, regional, and global power. As such, this is an important and useful book for anyone interested in contemporary Chinese affairs.” (Peter Worthing, Pacific Affairs, Vol. 90 (2), March, 2017)

“The edited volume has enormous value in providing substantive knowledge and information, in-depth analyses, and mostly sober judgments and predictions … . the book should be on the reference shelf of scholars who study the rise of China and its implications and who are interested in the future of U.S.-China relations and the future of Asia.” (Chengqiu Wu, Journal of Chinese Political Science, Vol. 1, 2016)


"China's growing power and what it means for the rest of us is the topic of the decade. What we lack is an objective, balanced, and systematic evaluation of just how powerful China is. This volume, the work of 13 outstanding China specialists, goes a long way to filling the gap." - Richard Bush, Brookings Institution, USA

"This edited volume on China's power contains contributions by some of the best China scholars in the world. One may not agree with all the views in it but, given the sophistication of the analyses, this book is a must read for those who wish to understand the future." - Jia Qingguo, Peking University, China
