FROM THE PUBLISHER'S PREFACE

This book is one of a series of publications released by the Academy of Political Science on timely subjects of special importance in the fields of public and international affairs. China’s Great Leap Outward: Hard and Soft Dimensions of a Rising Power brings together essays with material that explores China’s economic and military expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the core principles and motivations that guide China’s growing influence in Latin America and Africa. We hope that the book, published both electronically and in print, will enlighten the ongoing debate over the future direction of Chinese foreign policy, both economic and military.

ONLINE SYMPOSIUM

Candidate Selection Process

With the 2014 Congressional elections approaching, the Academy of Political Science and Political Science Quarterly present an online symposium focused on the candidate selection process. The scope of the articles included in the symposium is threefold: review the reasons why candidate recruiting is so critical to the success of political parties; evaluate how candidates assess personal and political choices and the way in which ambition endures over time; and, examine how the changing campaign finance landscape affects the resources available to those who consider running for political office.

Symposium Organizers: Paul S. Herrnson and Kelly D. Patterson
