about this item

As part of this collaborative project, economic historian and international relations expert, Niv Horesh has assembled the world's top experts on China's policy vis-à-vis the Middle East to analyse the various geopolitical trends affecting the region following the upheavals of the Arab Spring. With China replacing the United States as the leading energy user and importer, its relations with the Middle East are becoming a major issue with global implications.

Horesh and his contributors set out to clarify issues that are critical to understanding the relevance of China's rise to the Middle Eastern aspirations; how Chinese energy needs are changing, and the ways in which a more economically powerful China might seek to reconfigure its ties with various Middle Eastern states and stakeholders.

The main findings of the book are that no one single framework can anticipate China-Mideast relations in the future.
