Thinking about China's Future


This rejoinder to Cui Liru's article argues that China's modernisation mission is enduring; that there continues to be a large mismatch in China's view of the world and how the world views China; it questions China's commitment to political reform; it discusses the economic challenges facing China and questions whether there is a distinct and unique China growth model; it assesses China's impact as a rising power on the international system; and it critiques China's global diplomacy and the future of US-China relations. The rejoinder is more circumspect on these issues than Cui's original article.
