The startling growth of China’s economic and military power, as well as its cultural influence, is having a huge impact on the rest of the world. The key region to observe this impact is, of course, Asia and the past decade has witnessed significant and multi-faceted changes in China’s policy toward its Asian neighbours and in the relations between them. The strategic dimension of China’s approaches to Asian international relations is increasingly a focal point in the scholarly community and policy-making circles. However, views on the strategic impact of China’s rise on Asia’s political and security future are polarized, with some believing that China’s regional policy is an intentional attempt to challenge the US supremacy in Asia, or who are simply suspicious of China’s long-term regional ambitions.

Volume I of this new Routledge Major Work collection examines China’s long-term strategy in Asia, and Volume II looks at China and non-traditional security in Asia. Volume III focuses on China and Asian regionalism, while Volume IV assembles the best scholarship on the response of Asian states to the rise of China and how China’s rise and its increasing influence in the region have changed the foreign and security policy of those regional states and their domestic political economies.

China’s International Relations in Asia is fully indexed and includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context.
