Book Launch: China Steps Out: Beijing’s Major Power Engagement with the Developing World
What are Beijing’s objectives towards the developing world and how they have evolved and been pursued over time? Featuring contributions by recognized experts, China Steps Out analyses and explains China’s strategies in Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Latin America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, and evaluates their effectiveness. This new work explains how other countries perceive and respond to China’s growing engagement and influence. Each of its well designed and expertly executed chapters is informed by the functionally organized academic literature and addresses a uniform set of questions about Beijing’s strategy. Using a regional approach, the authors make comparisons among regions based on their economic, political, military, and social characteristics, and consider the unique features of Chinese engagement in each region and the developing world as a whole. CSIS’s own Dr. Michael Green, Senior Vice President for Asia and Japan Chair, extols that “This new volume is a must read for anyone trying to make sense of China’s impact around the globe. China Steps Out will be of great interest to students and scholars of Chinese foreign policy, comparative political economy, and international relations."
Join the Center for Strategic and International Studies for a discussion on China Steps Out and the implications of China’s strategy for the world. The discussion will feature Joshua Eisenman, Ph.D., (The University of Texas at Austin) and Dr. Eric Heginbotham, Ph.D., (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Bonnie Glaser, Director of the China Power Project and Senior Adviser for Asia at CSIS, will moderate. Dr. Michael Green, Senior Vice President for Asia and Japan Chair, will open the event.
Book will be available immediately after the event for $50.00. Payment can be made in cash.
