What strategies has Jiang Zemin adopted to cope with new circumstances in order to strengthen his leadership? What are the challenges these new reform measures have generated for the leadership? And how have domestic concerns constrained the leadership's intention in China's foreign relations?

These are some of the questions which this volume attempts to address.


The authors agree that Jiang Zemin is not a man without any political initiative. He has struggled to establish his own style of leadership, and to strengthen the legitimacy of his leadership by setting forth new rules and institutions for political games and by finding new measures to cope with new challenges. This collection of articles shows the success Jiang and his colleagues have had in strengthening their leadership; how the different reform measures have strengthened Jiang's rule; and how the ongoing reform has created new challenges for his regime.

There has been much hyperbole about China's economic power, especially if it is linked with the entrepreneurial talents of the ubiquitous Chinese spread around the globe. Some countries have been encouraged to sound warning bells about China's future ambitions to dominate the region.

All this is not surprising, even understandable. But the danger of exaggeration to the point where efforts to predict what China and the Chinese will do become merely alarmist, and the predictions become self-fulfilling, has to be guarded against. There is no easy remedy for deep-seated suspicion and hostility leading to persistent attempts to mislead and provoke. The recent financial crisis in East Asia has aggravated some worst-case scenarios and these may bring additional worries to the region's plans for ultimate recovery.

The three essays in this volume focus on some areas where myths and prejudices have long survived. They offer different perspectives and suggest alternative ways to approach certain problems of understanding China's relations with Southeast Asia. Joining the modern world : inside and outside China by Gungwu Wang Book 8 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "The ongoing drama of Chinese people seeking to be modern has been enacted in different parts of the world.

There are interesting differences among these Chinese, depending on where they have been living. Over its long history, China did not develop its own concepts and theories of international relations. Indeed, until the late Qing dynasty, China did not have a ministry of foreign affairs. All modern concepts of international affairs only came to China when the country was forced to open to the outside world in the late Qing. However, it does not mean that China did not have experiences in interacting with other countries. Unable to display preview.
