The Rise of China

The Impact on Semi-periphery and Periphery Countries

Edited by: Steen Fryba Christensen, Li Xing

This book examines the rise of China and its transformative impact on almost all areas of global political, economic, and social life. The book looks at some very important questions, such as: Will the rise of China lead to the sinicization of the international regime and the liberal order, due to its historical transformation from a semi-periphery position to becoming part of the core of the capitalist world system? * Will China be a cooperative actor or a disruptive one? A force for continuity or a force for change? * Is China displaying an alternative development model to all other developing countries? * Does China's ascent represent a new "beginning of history" rather than "end of history?" * Will the rise of China lead to the peripherization of existing semi-periphery countries? And to the altering of the traditional pattern of relationships between the exiting West-based world order and the developing world?
