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.

Between the Eagle and the Dragon
G. JOHN IKENBERRY argues that East Asia is increasingly marked by the emergence of two hierarchies—a security hierarchy dominated by the United States and an economic hierarchy dominated by China. He argues that in this emerging regional order, the United States will not exercise hegemony as it has in the past. But, paradoxically, it is being drawn into the region in new and more complex ways.
