China’s Global Vision and Actions

Reactions to Belt, Road and Beyond

Peter J. Rimmer AM, Emeritus Professor, School of Culture, History and Language, ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

This insightful book examines the growing role of China on the global stage by gauging the varying reactions of international spectators to Beijing’s hugely significant Belt and Road Initiative. Laced with detailed empirical studies and an array of illustrative maps, Peter Rimmer assesses the domestic impact of the Initiative thus far and offers an astute appraisal of the imperial connotations of Beijing’s global logistical project.

‘Peter Rimmer’s China's Global Vision and Actions is a tour de force examination of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Using geologistics as the analytic compass, Rimmer takes the reader farther and wider than any previous book in understanding the BRI’s true global scope, significance and emerging impact.’
– Xiangming Chen, Trinity College, US and Fudan University, China

‘This is a remarkable and innovative book. Drawing on insights from geologistics, geopolitics and geoculture, Peter J. Rimmer provides a much-needed analytical intelligence of China’s perspective of global transport geography through a detailed empirical and conceptual exploration of landbridges and maritime corridors of the Belt and Road Initiative.’
– Claude Comtois, University of Montreal, Canada
