This current geopolitical handbook is dedicated to giving readers, specialist and non-specialist alike, a comprehensive look into Xi’s geostrategic plans and challenges. The recent change in legislation in China that gave Xi the de facto title of President for life (finally aligning with his other two roles – head of the Chinese Communist Party and Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese military – which had always been life term appointments) demands ever more study and analysis on just what Xi himself thinks and what strategies he considers crucial?
This excellent, relatively brief, volume touches upon these critical issues in a compelling, thorough, and yet still accessible way. Within these pages you will find analytical elaborations on Xi’s coming military doctrine, the 19th Communist Party Congress and its new prospects, the geopolitics and future strategies of the Uyghur movement, the Belt and Road Initiative, and finally the impact of President Trump and his interaction with XI. Taken in sum, any reader will be hard-pressed to find so many essential aspects of Chinese geostrategy (and its critics and challengers) tied so efficiently together into one volume. Additionally, the author of this work, despite his own impressive achievements and eminent stature in the field of global affairs, has striven to write and argue so as to intensify understanding and deeper knowledge, whether that be culturally, strategically, or diplomatically.
