Asia is set for another great power war. As Chinas influence spreads beyond its territorial borders and its global aspirations gain momentum so tensions with its neighbors are reaching breaking point. In this clear-sighted book, Jonathan Holslag debunks the myth of Chinas peaceful rise, arguing instead that Chinas policy of shrewd intransigence towards other Asian countries will inevitably result in serious conflict.

Chinas ambitions are not malicious. But what China wants namely to maximize its security and prosperity will lead to a huge power imbalance, where China towers above her neighbors, impels them into unequal partnerships, and is increasingly able to seize disputed territory.

At present, Chinas focused and uncompromising pursuit of its own interests is bearing fruit. Many of Chinas neighbors are still too weak to counter Beijings influence, and China has ably exploited divisions between them to divide and rule. But several regional powers are now joining forces to stop China. With the PRC unlikely to back down and nationalism riding high, Chinas coming war with Asia is already in the making.
