JONATHAN HOLSLAG teaches international politics at the Free University Brussels. He has published extensively on China's foreign policy strategy in Asia.
`A smart and provocative analysis that deserves wide attention.' Francois Godement, European Council on Foreign Relations `In this perceptive and pragmatic book, Jonathan Holslag awakens Europe to its romantic self-deception regarding China's expansionist intentions and offensives. Europe must get realistic about China and this book may just be that wake-up call.' Karel de Gucht, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and former EU trade commissioner A strong and thought-provoking argument about the implications of China's rise for Europe. Alan Beattie, Financial Times `A powerful counterpoint to the increasingly complacent attitudes of European (and British) policymakers to a country that combines authoritarian politics with a state-directed economic system.'
