About this book

This book assesses the challenge to the dominance of Euro-American political and economic liberalism from China's emergence as a global presence. China presents the most significant present-day example of the dual process of participation and resistance. Paltiel's offers intriguing insights into the prospect of equality in a system of global power.

Reviews

"This is an important book written by one of Canada's leading Sinologists. Paltiel brings to life China's preoccupation with sovereignty and shows why this issue lies at the heart of China's actions in the world. This book is richly researched and well-written. Those who want to obtain a better understanding of China's "rise" to prominence as a great power in this century will be well-advised to read Paltiel's thoughtful and timely work."

- Bernie Michael Frolic, Professor Emeritus, York University
