The rise of China on the international stage is one of the most significant developments in contemporary geopolitics. Mainstream Western international relations theories argue that the rise of a new global power invariably leads to worrisome instability. Kang argues for the understanding of and engagement with China, rather than containment and confrontation. His detailed and balanced study reveals that China's neighbors see its ascent as a stabilizing force, and welcome China as a leader because of a shared Asian identity, its traditionally central position in Asian international relations, and the material benefits other nations believe an alliance with Beijing can now bring.
