Chinese Foreign Policy

Theory and Practice

Edited by Thomas W. Robinson and David Shambaugh

A Clarendon Press Publication

Studies on Contemporary China

This work offers and unprecedented survey of China's foreign relations since 1949. Beginning with an analysis of the historical, perceptual, economic, and political sources of Chinese foreign policy, the work reviews China's desire to ensure its own security and regain freedom of initiative in its foreign relations. The work then reviews the international sources of China's foreign relations, such as strategic systems and scientific imperatives, as the country searches for a redefined role in the multipolar world order.
