Titre : The Pragmatic Dragon: China s Grand Strategy...

Éditeur : University of British Columbia Press, Canada

Date d'édition : 2015

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. China shares borders and asserts vast maritime claims with over a dozen countries, and it has had boundary disputes with nearly all of them. Yet in the 1960s, when tensions were escalating with the Soviet Union, India, and the United States, China moved to conclude boundary agreements with these neighbours peacefully. In this wide-ranging study of China s boundary disputes and settlements, Eric Hyer finds China s behaviour was strategic and even demonstrated willingness to compromise. This behaviour in earlier periods is pertinent to the ongoing territorial disputes in the East and South China Seas. The Pragmatic Dragon analyzes these disputes and the strategic rationale behind China s behaviour, providing important insights into the foreign policy of a nation whose presence on the world stage continues to grow.

Synopsis : China shares borders and asserts vast maritime claims with over a dozen countries, and it has had boundary disputes with nearly all of them. Yet in the 1960s, while China was embroiled in a growing confrontation with the Soviet Union, India, and the United States, Beijing moved to peacefully settle ongoing boundary disputes with its neighbours. In this wide-ranging study of China's boundary disputes and settlements, Eric Hyer finds its territorial negotiations were pragmatic and strategic, with China demonstrating willingness to compromise. The Pragmatic Dragon analyzes each dispute and the strategy behind it, providing important insights into the foreign policy of a nation whose presence on the world stage continues to grow.
