Most global citizens are well aware of the explosive growth of the Chinese economy. Indeed, China has famously become the qworkshop of the world.q Yet, while China watchers have shed much light on the country's internal dynamics--China's politics, its vast social changes, and its economic development--few have focused on how this increasingly powerful nation has become more active and assertive throughout the world. In China Goes Global, eminent China scholar David Shambaugh delivers the book that many have been waiting for--a sweeping account of China's growing prominence on the international stage.

Shambaugh offers an enlightening look into the manifestations of China's global presence: its extensive commercial footprint, its growing military power, its increasing cultural influence or qsoft power, q its diplomatic activity, and its new prominence in global governance institutions. But Shambaugh is no alarmist. In this balanced and well-researched volume, he argues that China's global presence is more broad than deep and that China still lacks the influence befitting a major world power--what he terms a qpartial power.q He draws on his decades of China-watching and his deep knowledge of the subject, and exploits a wide variety of previously untapped sources, to shed valuable light on China's current and future roles in world affairs.$38 billion, a€ although the rival consulting firm Deloitte (SC Touche put the registered deal value for the year higher at $62 ... or what might be described as a€œ passa€”througha€ locales: Hong Kong, the British Virgin Islands, Grand Cayman Islands, anbsp;...
