About this book

This book explores China’s significant economic and security interests in the Middle East and South Asia. To protect its economic and security interests, China is increasingly forced to compromise its long-held foreign policy and defence principles, which include insistence on non-interference in the domestic affairs of others, refusal to envision a foreign military presence, and focus on the development of mutually beneficial economic and commercial relations. The volume shows that China’s need to redefine requirements for the safeguarding of its national interests positioned the country as a regional player in competitive cooperation with the United States and the dominant external actor in the region. The project would be ideal for scholarly audiences interested in Regional Politics, China, South Asia, the Middle East, and economic and security studies.

Reviews

“Stunning and addictively readable, Dorsey’s well balanced mix of investigative journalism and academic long-term perspective presents a new puzzle for China. It presents a compelling political, economic and social portrait from a region that is pivotal to the Chinese ‘win win’ Belt and Road initiative success.” (Alessandro Arduino, Co-Director, Security & Crisis Management Program, the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences – UNITO, China)

“There is no one better placed to help us to reach a balanced understanding of the challenges and opportunities than James M. Dorsey whose knowledge of the region is unparalleled. His sophisticated study is essential reading for anyone interested in China, which is to say, anyone interested in international relations in the 21st century.” (Bilahari Kausikan, Chairman, Middle East Institute, Singapore)

“This book is probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date endeavour at understanding China’s westward policy. It is both a very serious journalistic investigation and a major academic reflexion on the world’s future.” (Stéphane Valter, Assistant Professer, Normandy University (Le Havre), France)
