Case Study: Can China Rise Peacefully?  As the Chinese economy continues to grow at a phenomenal rate, realists confront the question of what will China do with its military muscle, and how will others (e.g. the USA and China’s neighbours) react?

Some guiding questions include, but are not limited to:

What is offensive realism?

What is defensive realism?

How has China emerged on the global scene?

Do you think China will become the largest power in the world?

Does a powerful China make you worried?

Is China a rising power or a recovering power?

Should China be viewed as a threat?
