The rise of China is not only a dramatic symbol of the redistribution of global wealth, it is an event marking the end of the unipolar international system, a process which will undoubtedly be one of the most momentous developments of the twenty-first century. Bringing together the work of leading experts in the field, Will China's Rise Be Peaceful? offers d wide-ranging examination of the interaction between deep historical patterns and the rise of China. While China has repeatedly signaled that it does not intend to be a revisionist power, its extraordinary economic growth and active diplomacy across Asia have led many observers to question this position. China's activities in recent years have caused constant readjustments among other key actors, who have been compelled to respond to Chinese policies in the broader Asia region. The book focuses on three areas in particular: security, stability, and legitimacy. Equally grounded in both theory and extensive empirical research, this timely volume offers lucid analysis of the forces behind structural changes in the international system. In both its approach and its conclusions, it will serve as a model for the study of China in a new era.
