New Book: China’s Rise and the Two Koreas

January 28, 2009

Scott Snyder, Senior Associate in International Relations at The Asia Foundation, explores the transformation of the Sino–South Korean relationship since the early 1990s in his new book, China’s Rise and the Two Koreas: Politics, Economics, Security. Snyder considers the strategic significance of recent developments in China’s relationship with both North and South Korea and also assesses the likely consequences of those developments for U.S. and Japanese influence in the region. His detailed study lends important context to critical debates regarding China’s foreign policy, Northeast Asian security, and international relations more broadly.

Available in January 2009 from Lynne Rienner Publishers.
