One of the most serious challenges in today's world is how the existing international order can accommodate the rise of China. This is particularly true in East Asia. A rising China has generated increasingly great dynamics for the region's order. Mingjiang Li and Dongmin Lee have brought together more than one dozen established scholars in the field to examine the key aspects of progress and problems of the evolving international order in East Asia. They highlight how China has developed its own strategy in building an East Asian international order, how it has interacted with other powers such as the USA, India, and ASEAN states in the process, and what major hindrances for the future of the regional order. Scholars and policy makers will find relevant and useful insights and wisdom in this well-researched and well-structured book. -- Zheng Yongnian, director, East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore, director, East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics, is a valuable publication[.]...This volume overall is a welcome and accessible addition to the burgeoning field of study of China's role in the region.
