Past and Present in China's Foreign Policy: From "Tribute System" to "Peaceful Rise"
Editor: Wills, John E., Jr.;
Does our understanding of China’s long and complex history of foreign relations help us to understand the rapidly changing involvement of China in the twenty-first century world? The contributors to this volume have written and thought about aspects of this question for many years. This many-sided volume, the result of a recent conference, offers a remarkable variety of approaches to these issues. “Tribute,” “empire,” “asymmetry,” and recent discussions of China’s “peaceful rise” and of the “Chinese model” for developing countries all come into the discussion. This book will be basic reading for policy analysts, concerned citizens, students of history, political science, and international relations, and their teachers.

“To the experts on China’s international interactions, offers both a comprehensive overview and a much-needed reconsideration of the conceptual and policy outlines of Beijing’s nascent global agency. To the beginners, it makes available an accessible, yet rigorous, analytical and empirical engagement with the dynamics of Chinese foreign policy.” —China Quarterly (211, September 2012)

“What has been lacking in the field is a concise, accessible discussion of the pertinence of the past for China today, one that would give those who might all too easily promote historical simplifications some pause. Past and Present in China’s Foreign Policy goes a long way toward accomplishing this goal. While it is rather slim, it is also quite comprehensive and readable, and should quickly become required reading for any seeking to make sense of this point of intersection within China’s foreign relations.” —Journal of Asian Studies (71:3, August 2012)
