Summary
  • Here, eminent China scholar David Shambaugh delivers the book that the world has been waiting for--a sweeping account of China's growing prominence on the international stage. For three decades, analysis have been charting how the world has changed China during its era of "reform and opening"--But now it is time to understand how China is impacting the world. Drawing on five years of research and travel around the world, including a year in China, this is the first major study to examine the multiple dimensions of China's growing presence on all continents. Contrary to conventional wisdom, however, the evidence reveals China's global presence to be more broad than deep, while its international influence is considerably limited. This may change over time, but for now, Shambaugh finds China to be a "partial power," with nowhere near the clout of the United States, and therefore not yet the strategic rival many Americans assume. Shambaugh also illuminates domestic debates that reveal the country as confused and conflicted about its international identity. This balanced but sobering assessment offers a useful correction to the often hyped discourse about China's rise.--Adapted from jacket
  • "Most global citizens are well aware of the explosive growth of the Chinese economy. Indeed, China has famously become the "workshop of the world." Yet, while China watchers have shed much light on the country's internal dynamics--China's politics, its vast social changes, and its economic development--few have focused on how this increasingly powerful nation has become more active and assertive throughout the world. In China Goes Global, eminent China scholar David Shambaugh delivers the book that the world has been waiting for--a sweeping account of China's growing prominence on the international stage. Thirty years ago, China's role in global affairs beyond its immediate East Asian periphery was decidedly minor and it had little geostrategic power. As Shambaugh charts, though, China's expanding economic power has allowed it to extend its reach virtually everywhere--from mineral mines in Africa, to currency markets in the West, to oilfields in the Middle East, to agribusiness in Latin America, to the factories of East Asia. Shambaugh offers an enlightening look into the manifestations of China's global ambitions: its extensive commercial footprint, its growing military power, its increasing cultural influence or "soft power," its diplomatic activity, and its new prominence in global governance institutions. But Shambaugh is no alarmist. In this balanced and well-researched volume, he argues that China's global presence is more broad than deep and that China still lacks the influence befitting a major world power--what he terms a "partial power." He draws on his decades of China-watching and his deep knowledge of the subject, and exploits a wide variety of previously untapped sources, to shed valuable light on China's current and future roles in world affairs."--
