Availability: Ready to download

The book shows how the Chinese are now confident of their capacity to learn all they need from the developed world and are keen to know which parts of the past they would need to build a modern Chinese civilization. They are very conscious of the challenges coming from the United States, and are looking for ways and means to respond to a superpower that wants to preserve i The book shows how the Chinese are now confident of their capacity to learn all they need from the developed world and are keen to know which parts of the past they would need to build a modern Chinese civilization. They are very conscious of the challenges coming from the United States, and are looking for ways and means to respond to a superpower that wants to preserve its dominant position in the international status quo.The book seeks to explain what China is doing and what its immediate and long-term interests are. It is not to defend or judge China. It does not employ theoretical frameworks that are not appropriate for describing Chinese conditions. It calls for understanding why history is particularly relevant to the Chinese state and most of its people. That way, we also see how the present and hopes for the future changes our perspectives of the past.

    Winston Churchill once remarked that “I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.” Probably, such comment could fit for China if one replaced the “national interest” with “history” (not history in general, but history in Chinese classic context, one of Four Core Texts 经史子集).

    Essentialist, uncritical usage of phrases like ‘the Chinese know’ and ‘China wants’; weirdly starry-eyed about Xi Jinping and his Dream; does not discuss the oppression in Tibet and the concentration camps in Xinjiang despite raising the importance of Central Asia; barely discusses China’s irredentism in the South China Sea despite its important to the book’s argument. Focusses too much on ‘traditional’ culture, ignoring the fact that all party cadres and government officials have to attend trai Essentialist, uncritical usage of phrases like ‘the Chinese know’ and ‘China wants’; weirdly starry-eyed about Xi Jinping and his Dream; does not discuss the oppression in Tibet and the concentration camps in Xinjiang despite raising the importance of Central Asia; barely discusses China’s irredentism in the South China Sea despite its important to the book’s argument. Focusses too much on ‘traditional’ culture, ignoring the fact that all party cadres and government officials have to attend training and regular retraining at party schools. Many statements, few arguments.
