Summary

Summary

The emergence of China begs a fresh look at power in world affairs -- more precisely, at how the spread of freedom and the integration of the global economy, due to the information revolution, are affecting the nature, concentration, and purpose of power. Chapters: freedom, power, and the rise of China; globalization and power politics; knowledge and freedom; knowledge and national power; powers as partners; and coda on U.S. policy. Concludes that the U.S. need not fear a cold war with China. China's own priorities -- economic growth and stability -- propel it toward legitimacy that can only come through reform, and toward the dominant technology.
