Today, one cannot fail to be amazed by the rapid economic rise of China and its presence in the international political arena. From an empire humiliated by Western European powers in the nineteenth century, China has risen to become one of the five permanent members of the Security Council, a nuclear power and one of the leaders of the global economy. It also holds large amounts of public debt issued by both other global economic powerhouses and small and medium-sized states. Its output isso vast, it is often referred to as the world’s factory, and its companies are expanding around the globe: in Africa, Latin America, Europe, etc. What is behind this great leap? Where is China headed? Can it transform its economic might into political power? Does China really aim to be the new global hegemon? Can it be? What role does it play in the regional political arena? Where does China stand in terms of the dynamics of influence and power struggles that shape today’s complex and asymmetrical multipolar society? These are just some of the questions addressed in this volume by authors from a variety of backgrounds (academic, diplomatic, business and politics), all of whom are keen observers of China’s economic rise and its attendant uncertainties.
