Description - Engaging China by Alastair Iain Johnston

In recent years China has emerged as a vitally important political and economic power in the Asia Pacific. Sustained economic growth since the late 1970s combined with an increase in military capability and nationalism has forced the rest of the world to take notice. This book is concerned with the contemporary responses from various countries toward the rise of Chinese power. In particular it explores the pressures that influence the choice of options and strategies those states can make in managing the uncertainties of a rising power. The authors provide both a theoretical background to the issues and individual chapters devoted to the policies of particular countries in the region including the United States, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia. The combination of a theoretical approach, along with the use of case studies, will help to improve understanding of the complex nature of international relations surrounding China.
