Abstract:

The author examines the impact of strategic culture on 21st century China. He contends that the Peoples Republic of Chinas security policies and its tendency to use military force are influenced not only by elite understandings of Chinas own strategic tradition, but also by their understandings of the strategic cultures of other states. Gaining a fuller appreciation for how Chinese strategists view the United States and Japan, our key ally in the Asia-Pacific, will better enable us to assess regional and global security issues.
