Summary

This book traces the development of Chinese thinking over four periods from the 1980s on and covers strategies toward: Russia and Central Asia, Japan, the Korean peninsula, Southeast and South Asia, and regionalism. It compares strategic thinking, arguing that the level was lowest under Jiang Zemin and highest under Hu Jintao. While pinpointing many mistaken assumptions, it credits China with overall successes and concludes that China stands at a crossroads. Deng Xiaoping's legacy about patiently biding its time may be replaced by growing assertiveness, which was difficult to suppress earlier and now is emboldened by China's rapid rise.

Author Biography

Gilbert Rozman is the Musgrave Professor of Sociology at Princeton University. This updated paperback edition completes his cycle of volumes on strategic thinking in Asia. The series has looked at the reorganization of Asia through the four prisms of bilateral relations and perceptions, regionalism, strategic thought, and national identities. He has focused his books on perceptions of this reorganization in China, Japan, South Korea, and Russia, countries which have been the focus of his teaching at Princeton and of his publications since 1970.
