The Rise of China and International Relations Theory

Jean Kachiga

This book examines succinctly the substantive assumptions of each one of the main international relations theories, namely realism, liberalism, constructivism, the English school, critical theory and idealism, against China's choices and behavior as an international actor. The author seeks to articulate how China's choices and behavior alternatively reflect and vindicate, or challenge and reject reigning assumptions of international relations theory.

Jean Kachiga earned his Ph.D. from the University of Frankfurt in Germany. He teaches in the Department of Political Science and International Studies at the State University of New York at Brockport.
