Will China challenge the existing global order? Does status drive the tension between China and the United States? An assertive China demands greater accommodation of its core interests, and a shirking China urges international audiences to see a still poor developing country. Using the metaphor of rebranding to understand China's varying displays of status, Xiaoyu Pu’s new book Rebranding China demystifies how China represents its global position. Drawing on a sweeping body of research, including original Chinese sources and interdisciplinary ideas from sociology, psychology, and international relations, this book puts forward an innovative framework for interpreting China's foreign policy.
