This book presents the results of a 2006 roundtable conference entitled "The Perceptions of China: Images of a Global Player, with editors Assmann (U. of Tubingen, Germany), Chan (The Hong Kong Polytechnic U.) and van Filseck (East Asian Forum of Sciences and Humanities, Germany) dividing these lectures between economics, political science, law and cultural studies. Many of these papers, from contributors all over the world, concentrate on the emergence of China as a capitalist power, and how this growth is related to the history of the most populated nation on the planet. Directed toward students and practitioners of international policy, these papers offer an objective yet distinctly European view of the recent economic progress of China, and how this will affect the other countries of the world. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
