Summary "Gerald Segal, a world specialist on Asia, was a prolific writer, including on China's role in world politics. Before he died in 1999 the journal Foreign Affairs published his article 'Does China Matter?'." "Expanding on Segal's theme, this volume gathers together ten leading writers on China to reassess his argument. This book opens with a discussion of Dr. Segal's contribution to scholarship on Asia, and also reprints the 1999 article. The authors then address the question 'does China matter?' by examining both the global and Asian dimensions of China's presence in the military, political, economic and cultural fields." "These essays provide an extension and critique of Segal's work, and represent an authoritative evaluation of China's current policies and future prospects. The question 'does China matter?' remains central to world politics. This book sets out a detailed case for exactly how, why and to whom it matters."--BOOK JACKET
