Many of those who study world affairs, international politics, and perhaps, read Foreign Affairs magazine each month; they understand that the biggest new development and for the next two decades will be the rapid economic growth of China. The United States has been fueling the Chinese build-up as their GDP has hit the number three spot in the world and slightly slipped back to number four, although it will soon pass both Japan and Germany in GDP.
Most of those looking at all this wonder how long it will take for China to become the second Super Power along side of the US. These folks are obviously concerned with China’s international behavior. So, for those folks, I’d sure like to recommend a very good book to you;
Of course, China’s military is only one topic, and one that was barely discussed in this book, as this book focuses on the needs of the that nation, the alliances it is making, and the trading partners it is bringing on-board. I’d recommend this work for anyone whose serious about studying the future of China.
