The concept of 'harmonious world' has become the basis for the new principles and goals of Chinese foreign policy under the fourth generation leadership. The question remains, however, about the exact meanings of these principles and slogans, and their implications for Chinese foreign policy. This is the first edited volume that attempts to address this significant question, and its insightful contributions elucidates new dimensions of Chinese foreign policy and their implications for China's relations with the world.

Review quote

"Harmonious World" and China's New Foreign Policy offers a comprehensive and well-researched examination of the important elements of contemporary Chinese foreign policy, including policy toward the great powers, its increasing presence in Africa, and the implications of its growing demand for imported energy resources. It is a valuable resource for both students and for specialists in Chinese foreign policy. -- Robert Ross, Boston College This timely volume provides insightful, multidimensional analysis of the new development in Chinese foreign policy. It deepens our understanding of Chinese thinking and behavior by addressing multiple challenges in China's search for a 'harmonious world' in uncertain circumstances. This book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand China's rapidly growing role in a changing world. -- Guoli Liu, College of Charleston The editors' well-written introduction and the subsequent five chapters by Jianwei Wang, Zhongqi Pan, Kai He, Jing Men, and Sheng Ding respectively, take stock of the deeper cultural and philosophical roots while discussing examples of contemporary foreign policy concerns, and therefore exude a more timeless quality, the sort that will prove valuable for other's seeking a good citation or two for their own works.
