Kim Hankwon et. al., China Complex (The Asan Institute for Policy Studies, 2014) – Korean edition

Now on sale at Kyobo Bookstores nationwide.


The Asan Institute for Policy Studies is pleased to announce the release of the Korean edition of China Complex, a groundbreaking new study of China’s growing global influence under President Xi Jinping and its implications for the Korean Peninsula.

Co-authored by the Center for China Policy at the Asan Institute and the Korea Economic Daily, China Complex examines how Koreans have viewed the rise of China and why the existing political discourse has failed to accurately capture the profound changes taking place inside China today. With recommendations for how Koreans should begin preparing for a world in which the United States will increasingly need to share leadership with China, this book is a timely account of one of the twenty-first century’s most important power shifts.
