Reviews

"This book introduces a new angle to understand how ancient Chinese thought influences modern theoretical studies of international relations both in China and abroad. The approach of developing international relations theory with ancient Chinese thinking has enriched modern theories of international relations. This approach provides a more reliable analysis of the international politics after the Cold War and a framework for predicting the coming world."

-Yan Xuetong, Dean of the Institute of Modern International Relations at Tsinghua University and Chief Editor of The Chinese Journal of International Politics

Facing questions of how to understand and to relate to the many faces of a rapidly developing China has become a highly challenging issue on the global stage. Professor Chih-yu Shih's new book gives us a careful and insightful study of the many lenses through which to regard a modern and ever-evolving China.

-Tingyang ZHAO, Tingyang Great Wall Chair and Professor of Philosophy, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences
