Changing China
Long Time Coming John L. Thornton                                          2
Is China democratizing? The country's leaders do not think of democracy as
people in the West generally do, but they are increasingly backing local elections,
judicial independence, and oversight of Chinese Communist Party officials. How
far China's liberalization will ultimately go and what Chinese politics will look
like when it stops are open questions.
The Rise of China and the Future of the West G.John Ikenberry             23
China's rise will inevitably bring the United States' unipolar moment to an end.
But that does not necessarily mean a violent power struggle or the overthrow of
the Western system. The U.S.-led international order can remain dominant
even while integrating a more powerful China-but only if Washington sets
about strengthening that liberal order now.
China's New Dictatorship Diplomacy
Stephanie Kleine-Ahlbrandt andAndrew Small                           38
Beijing has recently stepped back from its unconditional support for pariah states,
such as Burma, North Korea, and Sudan. This means China may now be more
likely to help the West manage the problems such. states pose-but only up to a
point, because at heart China still favors nonintervention as a general policy.
Reconsidering Revaluation
David D. Hale and Lyric Hughes Hale                                   57
Politicians in Washington are clamoring for currency revaluation in China to reverse
China's trade surplus with the United States. But the trade imbalance is not the
threat they make it out to be, and a stronger yuan is not the solution. Everybody
should focus instead on properly integrating China into the global economy.
