CSIS Book Launch: "Rising Star: China's New Security Diplomacy"
CSIS hosted a Book Launch event, "Rising Star: China's New Security Diplomacy" by Bates Gill, holder of the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies. Other discussants included Mike Green, who holds the CSIS Japan Chair, and Neil King, a reporter from The Wall Street Journal.
The attached invitation describes the book in further detail:
"Over the past decade, China’s approach to regional and global security affairs has become more proactive, practical, and constructive, a trend favoring U.S. interests in many ways. At the same time, China’s new strategy has also bolstered its international influence and may enhance its ability to resolve thorny issues—such as Taiwan’s future—on its own terms. In exploring these dynamics, Gill focuses on Chinese policy in three areas: regional security mechanisms, nonproliferation and arms control, and questions of sovereignty and intervention. Looking to the future, he offers specific recommendations for a balanced and realistic approach that emphasizes what the two countries have in common, rather than what divides them."
