China and the Middle East : Venturing into the Maelstrom, Hardback Book

China and the Middle East : Venturing into the Maelstrom Hardback

Part of the Global Political Transitions series


This book explores China's significant economic and security interests in the Middle East and South Asia.

To protect its economic and security interests, China is increasingly forced to compromise its long-held foreign policy and defence principles, which include insistence on non-interference in the domestic affairs of others, refusal to envision a foreign military presence, and focus on the development of mutually beneficial economic and commercial relations.

The volume shows that China's need to redefine requirements for the safeguarding of its national interests positioned the country as a regional player in competitive cooperation with the United States and the dominant external actor in the region.

The project would be ideal for scholarly audiences interested in Regional Politics, China, South Asia, the Middle East, and economic and security studies.
