Leading scholars examine China's global strategic plans, from Hong Kong to military power, to economic dominance Over the past few decades, China has increasingly challenged the global influence of the United States. In China's Grand Strategy, David B. H. Denoon brings together a group of eminent scholars to explain China's rapid ascendance on the world stage, as well as its future implications for global politics.

Contributors address the military, economic, diplomatic, and internal political factors shaping China's strategy, in addition to highlighting Beijing's objectives in different parts of the world, such as Central Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Ultimately, they explore the promise and perils of China's rapidly changing political ambitions, showing how the country has made its mark on the twenty-first century.

China's Grand Strategy provides insight into China's quest to become a global leader, particularly at a time when the future of both China and the US remain uncertain in the context of current crises like the coronavirus pandemic, the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, and escalating tension between top leaders and officials. This book cannot predict the future for China or the US, but the insights offered can help make sense of where we have been and where we are going.

Reviews for China's Grand Strategy: A Roadmap to Global Power?

David B. H. Denoon has assembled seasoned scholars who provide a fascinating and wide-ranging set of assessments on different dimensions and global regions in China's increasingly assertive, and frequently fraught, encounter with the world. A thorough and superb synopsis. -- David Shambaugh, author of Where Great Powers Meet: America and China in Southeast Asia As the United States prepares to recalibrate relations with China, China's Grand Strategy offers a nuanced and intelligent roadmap for the Biden administration. These highly qualified contributors give priority to the most challenging issues involved in the process: new technologies, diplomacy, and strategic regional issues in Northeast Asia, South Asia, Eurasia, and North America. This book avoids ideological demagoguery and deals with the emerging realities as China consolidates its place as a major player in world affairs. -- Riordan Roett, co-editor of China's Expansion into the Western Hemisphere: Implications for Latin America and the United States
