"A focused and cohesive book... Careful consideration is given to a wide range of international relations theories as they apply to China's growing power in the 21st century. The theories are so well explored that the book goes beyond being a China study; it can be recommended ... more broadly as a political and international relations theory book... In addition to the US scholars, four contributing authors are Chinese, one is Korean, and one Japanese. Thus, a range of perspectives is provided. This reviewer has not seen a more sophisticated book on China's rise to power."-Choice, May 2009
