About this book

This book examines how recent fundamental changes influence Sino-Russian relations and the wider long-term implications of the revolving Sino-Russian dynamic on international affairs. It brings together leading scholars to examine recent developments across the whole relationship – from grand strategy and global governance, to bilateral energy and military ties, and regional interaction in Central Asia, Northeast Asia, and the Middle East. The Sino-Russian relationship boasts major achievements, but also reveals important differences and latent tensions. The project is intended for policy-makers, academics and students of strategic studies, diplomacy studies, Chinese politics, Russian politics and foreign policy.

Reviews

“The book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand not just Sino-Russian relations, but also the trichotomous relationship between China, Russia, and the United States in an increasingly polycentric world.” (Jayant Prasad, Director General, Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, New Delhi)

“Chapters on such topics as military ties, Eurasian relations, the Arctic, and the triangle with the United States are timely and among the best coverage on these subjects now available. Analysis of shifts in Russian thinking is especially noteworthy. Given the significance of the subject, this book merits attention by those who debate foreign policy and by many who are studying international relations.” (Gilbert Rozman, Emeritus Professor, Princeton University, USA, and editor-in-chief, The Asan Forum)

“The Russia-China relationship has undergone remarkable changes in the last few years—it has become both broader and deeper. This edited collection is a useful contribution to further our understanding of their bilateral relations and the US-China-Russia triangle.” (Richard Weitz, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Political-Military Analysis, Hudson Institute, USA)
