Why China's Rise Doesn't Threaten the West

Edward Steinfeld

  • Challenges the assumption that China's meteoric rise represents a threat to U.S. influence and Western institutions.
  • Perfectly timed given the increasing worries about Chinese economic power in the wake of the global financial crisis
  • Suggests that energy and human rights reforms implemented by the U.S. will prompt similar positive movements in China.
  • His bold alternative perspective will appeal to a broad audience, including businesspeople and general readers interested in global politics
