Review and Analysis (Volume 1)

Edited by: Yang Guang

Contributions by: Liu Maomin, Michelle Wan

Written by leading researchers and Middle East specialists at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), this book examines China's relationship with the nations of the Middle East. It is a timely contribution to the study of the Middle East, as China's presence in the region becomes more apparent. The book begins by examining the historical relations between China and the Middle East; the shared experiences and cultural affinity of these ancient civilizations. It then goes on to examine military exchanges between China and the region, with particular emphasis on exchanges with Iran. Many nations in the region (for example, Turkey) are "looking East" to China, and this book examines the strengthening economic ties between China and the region. The book is devoted to China's relations with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Iran. China's standpoint on the latter's nuclear position is also discussed. (Series: China International Relations)
