An excellent guide for understanding the trends, challenges and opportunities facing China through globalization, this Handbook answers the pertinent questions regarding the globalization process and China’s influence on the world.

With contributions from leading experts and international researchers, each chapter covers key topics regarding China’s participation in globalization, including: China’s new role in global economic governance; outward direct investment; China’s soft power and the implications for foreign relations; global migration, diaspora and talent. An enriching range of case studies and extensive empirical research are used to explore the successes and failures of globalization in China, and to discuss the dilemmas facing decision makers in today’s globalized world. A major contribution to the field, this Handbook offers valuable insights to China’s often misunderstood globalization process.

An essential reference for academics and researchers looking for a go-to empirical resource, this Handbook provides scholars of economics, politics and East Asian studies with an exemplary selection of contemporary research on China and globalization.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Handbook on China and Globalization is a valuable contribution to the understanding of how China has integrated and engaged with the global economy. This book could be of interest not only to academic researchers but also to practitioners who would like to learn about various aspects of China’s experiences and current situation in globalisation. Furthermore, this book could be a useful reference for large countries that are going through similar steps that China has taken towards integrating into the global economy.’
– Yixiao Zhou, Asian-Pacific Economic Literature

‘Handbook on China and Globalization is not only an excellent reference for students, professors and researchers, but also a great practical guide on commercial issues for entrepreneurs, investors, and officials. The diverse perspectives put forward in different chapters offer new ways to understand Chinese globalization, innovation, and international influence.’
– Long Yongtu, Former Vice Minister of Commerce, China

‘Handbook on China and Globalization is an excellent gateway for those wanting to explore key issues related to new modes of globalization in the 21st century. China has been one of the pivotal drivers of this new globalization process. China’s transformation into a trading powerhouse has helped to create a burgeoning middle class at home while boosting development in other emerging economies by spurring the integration of global markets and value chains. This Handbook provides an excellent overview of this historic transformation and its implications for China and the world.’
