China has grown rapidly since the late 1970s when Deng Xiaoping first began implementing radical reforms. Today, China challenges the United States militarily in the region and diplomatically around the world. How are we to understand this rise? This presentation provide the context for understanding what China’s growth means for the international community, how Chinese leaders view their place in the world and what problems they must surmount to achieve those goals.
