  1. Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China's Push for Global Power (Paperback) Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China's Push for Global Power (Paperback)
    Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China's Push for Global Power (Paperback)

    Howard W. French

    ₱850.00

    For many years after its reform and opening in 1978, China maintained an attitude of false modesty about its ambitions. That façade, reports former New York Times Asia correspondent Howard French, has now been cast off. China is increasingly asserting its place among the global powers, signaling its plans for pan-Asian dominance by building its navy, increasing territorial claims to areas like the South China Sea, and diplomatically bullying smaller players. Underlying this attitude is the millennia-old concept of tian xia, which held that everything “under the heavens” fell within the influence of the Chinese empire.
