This is an updated and expanded new edition of Chinese Foreign Policy, which explains the processes, actors and current history behind China's international relations as the country develops as a global great power. These issues are examined on two levels. First, the work examines the question of responsibility for Chinese foreign policy in the modern era, including the role of the Chinese leadership, the Communist Party, and various ministries and agencies along with economic and social actors. Second, the book explores the expansion of China's foreign policy priorities, from primarily regional concerns to matters on an international scale, including global security, international trade, the development of Asia-Pacific and international organisations, and the development of strengthened relations with regions well beyond China's periphery. This second edition develops these themes while underscoring the dramatic changes in Chinese power which have taken place since 2009, years which have been marked by the global recession and economic crises in the United States and Europe, the expansion of Chinese military power, the shifts in regional policies within Asia itself, and the overall movement of the international system towards greater multipolarity. This revised edition updates the pedagogy and adds further features, including text boxes addressing specific current events in Chinese foreign policy. This book will be essential reading for students of Chinese Foreign Policy and Asian International Relations, and highly recommended for students of diplomacy, international security and IR in general.
