China’s Foreign Policy Since 1978: Return to Power demonstrates how China has projected power and countered external initiatives that undermine its security demands while attempting to prevent encirclement. China has leveraged its position in asymmetrical relationships and implemented wedge strategies to achieve the success it enjoys today. The book would benefit from more updated comparative data, especially in the first chapter, which includes global economic statistics. These statistics, especially some of the trade data, don’t go further than 2013. Despite this minor shortcoming, Khoo’s book is a helpful addition to the literature for anyone seeking a broader understanding of China’s foreign policy and its current position in world politics. China’s Foreign Policy since 1978: Return to Power is a necessity for the academic library and a must-read for all students and academicians interested in China’s foreign affairs.
