How China Is Building An Empire
By Michael Vatikiotis and Murray Hiebert, Far Eastern Economic Review, Nov. 20, 2003
A very good article on China's foreign policy towards Southeast Asian nations. is China using a liberal economic and multilateral framework to quietly challenge the realist security-led policy of the United States? Is China is pursuing a genuine multilateral foreign policy here? If so, why China tries to exclude Japan and the US? Is China trying to "cooperate today, compete tomorrow"? If this is the case, how the US could respond to it?
