This volume provides a coherent and comprehensive understanding of Chinese security policy, comprising essays written by one of America's leading scholars.
Chinese Security Policy covers such fundamental areas as the role of international structure in state behavior, the use of force in international politics (including deterrence, coercive diplomacy, and war), and the sources of great-power international power transitions. The research integrates the realist literature with key issues in Chinese foreign policy, thereby placing China's behaviour in the larger context of the international political system. Within this framework, Chinese Security Policy considers the importance of domestic politics and leadership in Chinese policymaking.
This book will be of great interest to all students of Chinese security and foreign policy, East Asian international relations, US foreign policy and international security in general.
