China's re-emergence as a significant economic and political actor is a geopolitical development of the first order.  It has been a century since the international system has had to accommodate a wholly new major power, particularly a power that has the potential to rival even the weight of the US.  This course seeks to equip students to assess the trajectory of China's current rise to prominence and its probable implications, particularly for stability in East Asia and for the wider modalities of global governance.  The course will cover China's political, economic and military policies and capabilities, as well the development of China's relations with other key actors.
