Product Description

China’s inexorable rise as a major world power is one of the defining features of the contemporary political landscape. But should we heed the warnings of a so-called ‘China threat?

’ Is China set to become the next superpower? Or will its ambitions be tempered by economic and political realities both at home and abroad? In this insightful and balanced analysis, noted China expert Stuart Harris explores China’s present foreign policy and its motivations, focusing in particular on the extent to which China will co-operate with the West in years to come. He considers what factors, international or domestic, will influence the foreign policies being shaped in Beijing, including how far the Chinese regime will adhere to existing global norms and the evolving international system. In contemplating this uncertain future, Harris assesses the considerable challenges and vulnerabilities likely to impact on Chinese foreign policy, leading it to be cautious and hesitant or assertive and aggressive on the international stage. Concise and authoritative, this book will be essential reading for anyone seeking a clearer understanding of the international relations of one of the world’s most important powers.

From the Back Cover

Using this book will improve your understanding of math and have you performing like a genius!

People who excel at mathematics use better strategies than the rest of us; they are not necessarily more intelligent. Speed Mathematics teaches simple methods that will enable you to make lightning calculations in your head-including multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction, as well as working with fractions, squaring numbers, and extracting square and cube roots. Here's just one example of this revolutionary approach to basic mathematics: 96 x 97 =Subtract each number from 100.

96 x 97 =4 3Subtract diagonally. Either 96--3 or 97-- 4. The result is the first part of the answer.

96 x 97 = 934 3Multiply the numbers in the circles. 4 x 3 = 12. This is the second part of the answer.

96 x 97 = 93124 3It's that easy!


"Above all, and especially for those coming to Chinese foreign policy and affairs for the first time, Harris book is balanced, orderly and informative" THE "In this balanced and sensible analysis, Stuart Harris offers a clear and engaging account of China's foreign policy and the internal and external pressures its leaders face. Impartial and non-alarmist in its discussion of the so-called China threat, this book will serve instructors and students admirably." Andrew J. Nathan, Columbia University "A thoughtful, comprehensive and well-written analysis of the multiple domestic and international sources of Chinese foreign policy and of ChinaÂs policy toward the United States, its Asian neighbours, and international institutions and norms. It is an admirably balanced account that places Chinese policy in the context of Chinese culture, history, national interests and its improving economic and military capabilities and in the context of the patterns of behaviour of other countries." Robert Ross, Boston College "Harris book, is well and fluently written, organized, informative and very comprehensive in terms of including many aspects of ChinaÂs foreign policy and makes a valuable contribution to the field of International Relations, particularly Chinese Studies."
