In this book leading scholars and practitioners from different disciplines and perspectives analyze how China’s phenomenal transformation and growth over the past two decades is challenging the rules of the game, internally and globally.  They focus on three critical areas: the internal economic, environmental and political sustainability of China’s development strategies; the economic development options for the rest of the developing world; and the continued economic and geo-political dominance of the United States. With its breadth of coverage and attention to the interconnections among these pivotal issues, this book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the implications of the rise of China.

Editorial Reviews

“In the large pantheon of ‘rising China’ books this study stands out. Its principal strengths derive from the cast of contributors and the breadth of coverage in their chapters. The authors do not accept China's "rise" as either inevitable or necessarily positive. They enumerate multiple domestic challenges that constrict China's power potential; they examine the consequences of competition from China for other developing nations; and they identify potential areas of global competition with the United States. This is a thought-provoking, well reasoned, and informative study--of use to scholars, students, journalists, and policy makers alike.”--David Shambaugh, George Washington University & The Brookings Institution“Global Giant provides an unusually comprehensive and sophisticated treatment of the internal challenges China faces as a consequence of its high economic growth, and of the questions it poses for developing countries and the current geopolitical constellation. Especially valuable is the book's analysis of China's economic policies as an alternative to the Washington Consensus. Specialists and non-specialists alike should read this important and timely book.”--José Antonio Ocampo, Professor, Columbia University, former UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs and former Finance Minister of Colombia
