  • China's Diplomacy in Eastern and Southern Africaby Seifudein Adem

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 109.95

    In contemporary discourse on China-Africa relations, there are three differing perspectives. On one hand Sino-pessimists view China as a giant, feeding on Africa’s resources to fuel its own industrialization. On the other hand, Sino-optimists see China as a benevolent state capable of ‘developing’ the continent. In the middle sit the... more...

  • T'ang Chinaby S.A.M. Adshead

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 42.00

    this book presents a picture focused on the T'ang period, one of China's acknowledged golden ages. Within a looser web of globalization, the T'ang period and its dynamics offers a distant mirror of our own time. An argument in world history may thus cast light on issues in contemporary politics. more...

    Is India ready for superpower status or too far behind China to ever catch up?

  • Democracy and Foreign Policyby R Bassett

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 44.95

    The Sino-Japanese crisis of 1931-33 provides effective illustrations of wider themes in British Foreign Policy.

The Manchurian problem and the controversies which it provoked give invaluable clues to an understanding of later... more...
