It’s a trifle steep, but you may nevertheless want to check out China and International Security. From the website:
China’s future role will have profound implications for international security.
The first work of its kind, this strategic assessment of China’s national security reveals the nation’s intentions, capabilities, and threats—and their implications for the United States and the world.
As China continues to develop the strategic means to advance its national interests in Asia and around the world, assessing its role in international security is the greatest strategic challenge now faced by the United States and its allies. China and International Securityfacilitates this critically important understanding, analyzing topics that range from strategic geography and orientation to gender ratios. Using detailed case studies and sharing expert insights, the work provides historical, internal, and contemporary analyses that reveal the nature and character of China’s national security.
This three-volume set is written for scholars, students, and policymakers. The volumes offer in-depth articles penned by intelligence professionals and journalists, as well as entries by scholars in fields as diverse as international politics, history, and strategic studies. While other works may attempt to predict the future of China’s rise or the nature of China’s future bilateral relationships, none so thoroughly examines the totality of China’s domestic, regional, and international security—and their implications.
