"China’s Political Worldview and Chinese Exceptionalism is a comprehensive analysis of the components and drivers of the narrative of Chinese exceptionalism, additionally exploring how this narrative is perceived in Asia. Overall, this book is a worthy contribution to debates on the implications of China’s rise for international order."
- Zerrin Torun, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 74, Iss. 10
“China’s Political Worldview and Chinese Exceptionalism succeeds in directing our attention to the role that exceptionalism plays in China’s global affairs and will appeal to a wide range of readers. China scholars will appreciate this authoritative study on Chinese exceptionalism in the age of Xi Jinping, a phenomenon which will likely be ever more present in the years ahead. IR theorists, particularly constructivists, will welcome the nuanced way that ideas and worldviews are included as explanatory variables in China’s diplomacy.”
