What is China's rightful place on the world stage? Will the world remain unipolar as signs of American decline appear to be mounting? How can China maintain a harmonious relationship with its neighbors? What does China intend to do with the new power and influence that appears to be at its disposal? In light of emergent post-2008 economic realities, how should China adjust its foreign economic relations? This volume, the first of its kind, gathers a collection of translations of influential essays, talks, and papers on Chinese foreign policy, national security, and foreign economic relations written by Chinese elites. Many papers have also served as propositions for policy prescriptions to China's leaders, the vast majority of which have to date only been available in Chinese.
Shao Binhong, is senior editor of the Institute of World Economics and Politics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and is also the Secretary-General, China Society of World Economics. Since 1996, she has been managing editor-in-chief of the
International Economic Review, one of China’s core periodicals.
"Shao Binhong is to be congratulated to her scientific approach in selecting the articles and papers by intellectuals and scholars that have been the most influential during the last two years – and then make them available to an international audience by translating them to English[...]There is an interesting perception of China’s position in the global system that is coming through the articles and that differs slightly from the common foreign perception."

“The volume provides an enormous service and effectively fulfills the purpose set out in its preface. I have benefited greatly from at least half a dozen of the chapters and am citing them prominently in my own latest studies, notably on the possibilities of more extensive trade and economic ties between our two countries.”
