In the next decade China’s actions on the world stage will affect us all. A new superpower, with the largest population and GDP on the globe, there are now fears that China is becoming more assertive. Here, awardwinning China expert Kerry Brown guides us through China’s foreign policy, from its skirmishes with US Navy destroyers in the South China Sea to its arguments with Japan over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands and its increased displays of military prowess – including huge investments in cyber warfare. Brown also assesses China’s extraordinary plan to create a ‘New Silk Road’ across Central Asia – one of the biggest infrastructure project in modern history. In doing so he seeks to answer a simple question: what does China want? The answer lies in the unique way China thinks about the world. A comprehensive analysis by one of the most recognised and respected authorities, and based upon unparalleled research into Chinese leaders, their beliefs and their instincts, China’s World is an essential read for the Western world.
Kerry Brown is the Director of the Lau China Institute at King’s College London and Associate for Chinese Affairs at Chatham House.  From 2012 to 2015 he was Professor of Chinese Politics and Director of the China Studies Centre at the University of Sydney. With 30 years experience of life in China, he has worked in education, business and government, including a term as First Secretary at the British Embassy in Beijing. He writes regularly for the Times Literary Supplement and The Observer as well as for many international and Chinese media outlets. He is the Amazon-bestselling author of CEO China (I.B.Tauris, 2016) andThe New Emperors (I.B.Tauris, 2014). His other books include Contemporary China (2012), Friends and Enemies: The Past, Present and Future of the Communist Party of China (with Will Hutton, 2009) and Struggling Giant: China in the 21st Century (with Jonathan Fenby, 2007)."
