Indeed, Gerald Chan (2004a, 2004b, 2005) has researched China’s compliance with international rules and norms in the areas of trade, environment protection, arms control and human rights. Thus, the liberal response to the rise of China is not to contain it, but to try to integrate the nation into the international society (Gill 1999; Shambaugh 1996; Shinn, 1996; Vogel 1997). To scholars like Lampton (2007: 126), China’s rise ‘can mean only one thing: engagement’. From the liberal perspective, both China and its trading partners have common interests in maintaining stability and prosperity in the post-Cold War world (Bacani 2003), and they should seek to maximize their absolute gains through international cooperation (Stein 1982: 318).

Gilley (2004) predicts that democratization will ultimately take place in China when a pro-democracy faction emerges from the Chinese Communist leadership. The assumption that a democratic China will be a peaceful China is based on the theory of democratic peace that is central to the liberal perspective on international relations (Doyle 1983, 1986; Fukuyama 1992; Rummel 1995; Russett 1993; Weart 1994). Liberals believe that democracies are restrained from fighting wars by constitutional mechanisms, as an unjustified war will not be supported by the people who have to bear the burdens of armed conflict.

Although the study does not directly focus on China’s perceptions of other great powers, many of the themes covered are pertinent to this book. Another important work is Avery Goldstein’s (2005) Rising to the Challenge, which attempts to trace the origins and evolution of China’s grand strategy in the 1990s and considers its implications for international security. According to Goldstein, PRC leaders have settled on a ‘transitional grand strategy’ designed to minimize the possibility that the rise of China is perceived as a threat to other countries and that it must be curtailed.
