Review quote

This is a well-researched and comprehensive study of the new Chinese foreign policy consonant with the harmonious world doctrine of the present Chinese leadership. It presents China's new multidimensional approach to diplomacy across a large part of the world. -- Yue-man Yeung, Chinese University of Hong Kong This volume provides a wide-ranging analysis of China's 'multidimensional diplomacy' as the means by which to promote 'peaceful development' and a 'harmonious world' and its practical influence on China's approach to regional and world affairs. The volume is written by Chinese foreign policy experts and analysts who collectively offer an in-depth and well structured study on Chinese new foreign policy under Hu Jintao. -- Sujian Guo Overall, the book is an engaging read and provides salient insights into China's growing diplomatic activism and global role. The quality and depth of scholarly research and argument is impressive. It is particularly refreshing to note that the list of contributors encompasses a wide range of Sinologists and Chinese foreign policy experts across the academic spectrum, ranging from doctoral candidates to full professors.
