China's historic accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in November 2001 not only represents an important milestone in China's integration into the global economy, but is also among the most important events in the history of the WTO and the multilateral trading system. As 2011 marked the tenth anniversary of the country's entry into the WTO, it seems timely and necessary for us to engage in an assessment of Chinese behavior in the liberal international economic regime. Such an assessment can not only help us understand China's role in the evolving structure of global economic governance, but can also shed light on the broader debate about the implications of the rise of China for the international system. Through a thorough examination of China's experience in the multilateral trade institution, this book seeks to better understand not only China's influence on the efficacy and legitimacy of the WTO, but also the impact of WTO membership on policy changes within China. In doing so, this project speaks directly to the following questions raised by China's unprecedented ascent in the international system: Is China a status quo power that is satisfied with the existing structure of global governance or is it a revisionist power seeking to rewrite existing rules? Is China a rule maker, rule follower, or rule breaker in international regimes?
