"Dragon Diplomacy" by Abdul Razak Baginda is published by Grosvenor House Publishing

Timely book about China's rise to power and the reality behind its perceived threat to neighboring states and Western democracy

About the Book:


This book tries to posit an alternative assessment of China's rise. Due to the far-reaching impact of China's economic and commercial arms, states have come to adopt a much more pragmatic approach, one that refuses to view this power in terms of a 'threat' perspective. A recognition of China's greatness does not necessarily place countries into a straightjacket of being subservient or playing second fiddle to Beijing. In a globalised world, to avoid being caught in the middle of a clash between these two titans, the United States and China, seems the most prudent stance, while at the same time deriving benefits from both sides.

About the Author:

Abdul Razak Baginda was a senior associate member of St Antony's College, Oxford as well as visiting fellow at Reikaku University, Japan.  He received his doctorate in International Relations from the University of Oxford.  He currently lives between London and Kaula Lumpur.  He has published extensively, his latest being "China-Malaysia Relations and Foreign Policy", published by Routledge (2015).

Excerpt from the book:

      "The question, therefore of who is afraid of China is a combination of reality and perception.  While he prevalent reality is that most countries maintain reasonable ties with Beijing predicated mainly on economic and trading interests, underneath this veneer of cordiality lies some lingering suspicion.  This is mainly based on the influence of the strong narrative that, in the future, China will be a powerful hegemon that may end up influencing, if not controlling, smaller, weaker states."
