China is now a global actor of significant and growing importance. It is active in regions and on issues that were once only peripheral to its interests, and it is effectively using tools previously unavailable. It is no longer appropriate to talk of integrating China into the international system; by and large, it is already there. Its international behavior is clearly altering the dynamics of the current international system, but it is not transforming its structure.
China's global activism is continually changing and has so many dimensions that it immediately raises questions about its current and future intentions and the implications for global stability and prosperity. This study examines how China views its security environment, how it defines its international objectives, how it is pursuing these objectives, and the consequences for U.S. economic and security interests.
"China’s International Behavior discusses two contrasting aspects of Chinese foreign policy—the country’s rise and the corresponding growth of political, strategic and economic challenges—in a professional and comprehensive format, making the book obligatory reading both for newcomers to the subject and for seasoned scholars."
