Description:

Many books claiming to aid our understanding of China are based on the assumption that it is destined to follow the model of the unilateralism. Ronald Keith shows that this underplays the importance of China's domestic politics, which will be essential in shaping the world. Highlighting the development over time of China's perception of it's own "rise", the book integrates domestic perspective into critical contemporary controversies concerning "socialism" versus "capitalism with Chinese characteristics," the struggle to create the rule of human rights and elaboration of a new stage of democratic reform.
