Description

This book sets out to answer how China's rise can best be understood from both East Asian and Western perspectives.

It also assesses the prospect of realignment away from the US hegemony in East Asia in light of persistent regional rivalries.

Throughout the book, the authors show that for China's neighbours, as well as for its own intellectuals, historicizing the country's rise provides one way of understanding its current ascendant trajectory, on the one hand, and acute social problems, on the other.To which historical precedent should one turn?

Did Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo get it right when he recently likened the contemporary Sino-Japanese relationship to that of Germany and Britain on the eve of World War I?

Is Harvard Law School's Noah Feldman correct in his assertion that China and the United States are on the verge not of a Cold War but of a "Cool War," in which a "classic struggle for power is unfolding at the same time as economic cooperation is becoming deeper?

The authors examine these questions and also focus on other observations that becloud China's rise.
