Xi Jinping, 'pragmatic' offensive realism and China's rise

Research output: Journal PublicationsPolicy or Profession paper

Abstract

Former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who launched China’s bold economic reforms, focused first on building up China’s economic power, aware that any overt pursuit of Chinese military power would unsettle other countries. It was a priority that his two immediate successors shared. But with President Xi Jingping’s call for the realization of “the China dream,” China now ranks the pursuit of military power as a priority alongside economic power. Zhang Baohui explores the complex ramifications for China’s foreign policy.
