LOOKING NORTH, LOOKING SOUTH:China, Taiwan, and the South Pacific
- Anne-Marie Brady(University of Canterbury, New Zealand)
Looking North, Looking South brings together the works of leading China, Taiwan, and Pacific politics specialists analysing a topic of growing importance: China and Taiwan's ever-growing involvement in the South Pacific. There is no doubt that China is on the rise in Asia, Africa, South America, the Caribbeans, and even the Antarctica and the Arctic, this rise can be partly attributed to China's activities in the South Pacific.This book will pinpoint China's involvement in the South Pacific within the context of China's wider foreign policy and the challenges it poses to the traditional dominant powers of the region â€” the China-Taiwan rivalry has helped to seriously alter the balance of traditional influence in the South Pacific where China is now one of the largest aid donors in the region, squeezing out Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, both in terms of funding and influence.
