About the eBook

'While there is a wealth of writing on Sino-US relations and a growing body of work on interactions between Europe and China, it is much rarer to find studies that triangulate these different sets of relationships. Through a series of issue-based case studies, this volume unpacks the different layers of this triangular relationship, showing where interests coincide and diverge. The result is not a single relationship, but a patchwork of different sets of power configurations depending on the issue at hand.'
- Shaun Breslin, University of Warwick, UK

'This book presents a novel, remarkably informative analysis of the implications of the rise of China in world politics and Sino-US-EU relations in different contexts. Its triangular approach and focus on the emerging post-financial crisis period ensure that it will help to set the agenda for future research on the G2 or G3 in a world of 'messy multilateralism'. It is certain to be essential reading for anyone interested in China or EU-US-China relations.'
- Francis Snyder, Peking University School of Transnational Law, China, LSE, UK and College of Europe, Belgium

The interaction between the EU, the US and China is of particular importance to the formation of the international order in the 21st century. This book focuses on the latest developments and examines how critical the interactions between these three players are to future global governance.

Jing Men, Wei Shen and their carefully selected contributors explore how China's ascending role is contrasted with the seemingly declining influence of the US and the EU, and challenges the existing power configuration in the global order. They examine how China's growth and future development trajectory will be a key factor, and why it is still hesitant to the responsibilities it should assume in global governance. The book argues that in order to fully construct a working and productive triangle relationship between the EU, the US and China, thus establishing an effective political and economic global leadership, both economic and trade cooperation, and more importantly, strategic thinking on global responsibilities should be developed among the three players.

This book will appeal to researchers, professors and students of international and comparative politics, as well as international relations. It will also be of interest to officials working within international organizations or national ministries, in addition to anyone who has a general interest in international affairs.
