China today is guided by a few overriding philosophies. Outwardly, it is promoting a "new type of great power relations" between itself and the United States, and a "community of shared interests" within Asia. Inwardly, it is guided by the "Chinese Dream," a vision for increased prosperity, greater social stability, and a higher quality of life for China's people. This collection of essays explore some of the realities of these philosophies — how they are reflected in Chinese policy, how they affect China's relations with the United States and U.S. allies in the region, and how policy is responding to and also changing the ways Chinese citizens work and live.
