Example text

In political terms, it is, of course, not yet a democracy—and perhaps its greatest challenge to the overall global system is its determination to become a successful high-income country without thorough reform of its authoritarian political system. All three elements reduce the likelihood that China will easily accept the systemic responsibilities that traditionally accompany superpower status, and they in fact lead some to conclude that acceptance of such responsibilities by China would not even be in the interest of the United States.

The integration of China into the existing global economic order would in any event be a far more daunting effort than the integration of Japan from the early 1970s, difficult and still incomplete as that task has proved to be. The challenge posed by China in security terms is less dramatic but still of great significance, as described in chapters 8 to 10. China has been expanding and modernizing its military capacity rapidly and, though it cannot yet match the United States on a global basis, its forces have become capable of much wider projection and will soon enable it to operate outside its region.

China itself will have to judge which of these institutional approaches would be most attractive and convey that preference to the rest of the world. But there remains the question whether China would prefer to continue going it largely alone, challenging the existing global system rather than joining with the United States or anyone else in an effort to modify that system in a gradual and orderly manner. Even the closest observers outside China, and maybe even the Chinese themselves, cannot know the answer to that question any more than they can foresee the orientation of overall Chinese foreign policy in the years and decades ahead.
