Today, China matters. The emerging China is no longer the old China. It is rising to unprecedented level that draws the attention of businessmen, academics, and strategists alike. China has become a new subject of inquiry among different disciplines and new publications are appearing every day. Within this paradigm, Facing China as New Global Power Domestic and International Dynamics from a Multidisciplinary Angle, edited by Huhua Cao & Jeremy Paltiel, adds new scholarship on the rise of China as a global power and answers important questions in a logical manner.
