Professor Gilbert Rozman - China's Grand Strategy - Past, Present and Future


China's increasing economic and military capabilities have attracted much attention in recent years. How should the world, especially the United States and its allies in Asia and Australasia, respond to this emerging great power? An answer requires not only understanding the speed and extent of China's rise, but also answering questions that have received much less attention: what is China's grand strategy, and what does this grand strategy imply for international peace and security in the coming years—and, most critically, what are the prospects for an increasingly prominent China and a dominant United States to rise to the challenge of managing their inevitable disagreements?

Professor Gilbert Rozman is the Musgrave Professor of Sociology at Princeton University where he has studied rapidly changing Asian societies for more than four decades. Professor Rozman is a Research Associate at Korea University and a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.
