Beyond the Four Percent Solution: Explaining the Consequences of China's RiseJournal of Contemporary China (2011)
Debates about the consequences of China's rise have focused mainly on China's foreign policy in security affairs and have been offered mostly within a realist framework; yet this limited approach to the problem ignores non-security issues, non-realist frameworks, and non-China sources of system-level outcomes. Policy-makers and scholars should significantly broaden their descriptive and explanatory frameworks in order to understand the consequences of a rising China. Using this broader approach will direct attention to systemic and idealogical factors in explaining whether China's rise is peaceful or not.
