This book examines the interplay of two sets of policies: the Chinese government's policies to its borderlands and international relations. It proposes a conceptual framework and argues that China's policymakers fail to make complete use of the opportunities in the borderlands for accomplishing foreign policymakers' agenda to strengthen China's relations with other countries, neighboring ones in particular. As a result, these foreign policies reflect the political elites' inadequate consideration of the negative impact of these policies on the borderlands, and underscore their worry for territorial disintegration. Therefore these policies center on the pursuit of central control through exercising administrative-military coercion, making the borderlands economically dependent, standardizing the cultural identity, and indoctrinating CCP-defined ideology. The challenges of the borderlands to the national integration are exaggerated so much that political elites pursued control and standardization at the expense of the identification of many people in borderlands with the regime, China's international image and the relations with its neighbouring countries.Contents:China's Borderlands and Their International Implications: An Overview (Y-F Hao & B K P Chou)The Disturbances in the Tibetan Areas and Ürümqi 2008–2009: Implications for China's International Relations (C Mackerras)Peaceful Rise from the Border: Chinese Practice of Diplomatic Leadership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (W-Q Song)China and Its Central Asian Neighbour (G Wacker)Facing Russia and Outer Mongolia: Border City Hulunbeier in the 1960s and the 2000s (T J Cheng)Prelude to the Diaoyutai Dispute: Chinese–Japanese Controversy Over the Liuqiu Islands as Seen from an International System-Change Perspective (E P-W Leung)China's Northeast Water Frontiers, East China Sea Disputes and Co-Management Approach (Q-S Zhao)The Evolution of Beijing's Military Strategy Toward Taiwan (Y Ji)Theorizing Language Rationalisation in Greater China: Political Transition, Self-Governance and Language Outcomes in Post-Handover Hong Kong (J-F Dupré)Local Autonomy Matters: One-Country Two-System Policy in Macao and Its Implications for China's Policies on Its Borderlands (B K P Chou)China's Myanmar Policy: Challenges and Adjustments (H Zhao)Readership: International strategists, political scientists, political economists, specialists in China, East Asia and Central Asia.
