The book reviews China’s middle-power relations with South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, South Africa, Turkey, and Brazil. It explores how much (or how little) China, and for comparison the United States, value middle powers and examines whether or not middle powers can actually shape China’s behavior.
Contributors address how these diverse nations are responding to a rising China and the impact of Chinese power on each.
