Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by The Economist Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by Foreign Affairs Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by Bloomberg News "[A] masterful survey." --Foreign Affairs "China Goes Global is a fascinating and scholarly challenge to the received wisdom about China's rise, and an important critique of the accepted narrative of Chinese expansionism." --The Economist "David Shambaugh provides a thoughtful look at the nature and consequences of China's rise in this carefully researched and well-written volume." --Henry A. Kissinger "The argument of China Goes Global is made forcefully, systematically and with plenty of evidence. It marshals information and research in a way that is valuable -- and often fascinating." --Financial Times "This is a must read for those interested in China's foreign affairs particularly and international relations generally." --Library Journal "[A] lucid, highly readable overview of China's government policy-making apparatus, media, military ambitions and capabilities, trade and investment patterns, and strained relations with almost every region of the world . . . Drawing on interviews with Chinese policymakers and his own perceptive observations of their conflicting impulses, Shambaugh pointedly corrects the usual hysterical exaggerations of Chinese power. His is an illuminating profile of a colossus that does not-yet-bestride the world." --Publishers Weekly "Here's a book that has its title right -- a statement worth making because so many stretch or bend them for marketing purposes. And that's only the beginning of the elegant distillation George Washington University political scientist David Shambaugh provides in this useful volume, which offers a detailed yet concise portrait of a nation widely perceived as on the cusp of what the Chinese government often ascribes to its American rival: hegemony." --History News Network "[T]imely and highly readable . . . With copious data and not a few anecdotes of his own experience, Shambaugh lays out systematically the case that China's reach, while undeniably global, is almost universally shallow." --Global Policy Journal "[Shambaugh's] meticulous exploration of the multiple ways in which China does not live up to its current reputation brings a breath of fresh and cooling air to an overheated topic. It's about time." --Christian Science Monitor "One of the most-prominent sinologists in the United States has written an important book on the global impact of China's rise." -- Andrew Scobell, Political Science Quarterly
