Looking for Balance

China, the United States, and Power Balancing in East Asia

eBook - 2012
Rate this:
By drawing on alternative theoretic approaches - most especially 'balance-of-threat' theory, political economic theory, and theories surrounding regime survival in multilateral rather than bilateral contexts - the author of this book creates an explanation of what is in motion in East Asia that differs widely from the traditional 'strategic vision' of national interest. He concludes that China's primary international relations aim is not to match U.S. military might or the foreign policy influence which flows from that power, and that its neighbours are not balancing against its rising power.
