"Fascinating, shrewd . . . The book deftly traces the rhythms and patterns of Chinese history." —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times In this sweeping and insightful history, Henry Kissinger turns for the first time at book length to a country he has known intimately for decades and whose modern relations with the West he helped shape. On China illuminates the inner workings of Chinese diplomacy during such pivotal events as the initial encounters between China and tight line modern European powers, the formation and breakdown of the Sino-Soviet alliance, the Korean War, and Richard Nixon’s historic trip to Beijing. With a new final chapter on the emerging superpower’s twenty-first-century role in global politics and economics, On China provides historical perspective on Chinese foreign affairs from one of the premier statesmen of our time.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, Note: 2,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Zentrum für organisationstheoretische Grundlagenforschung), Veranstaltung: Führungspraxis: Die strategische Positionierung eines global tätigen Finanzdienstleisters, 44 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Seit Beginn der wirtschaftlichen Reformen 1978 hat die Volksrepublik China (im Folgen-den China genannt) einen beeindruckenden Aufschwung erfahren, was sich in einer Verfünfzigfachung des BIP in 2005 ausdrückt. Höhepunkt der chinesischen Marktöffnung war der Beitritt zur Welthandelsorganisation (WTO) im Jahr 2001, der eine schrittweise Liberalisierung bis Dezember 2006 bewirkte. Grundlage, um Stabilität zu gewährleisten und einen solchen Boom effizient zu gestalten, muss ein gesunder Fi-nanzmarkt sein. Das hat auch die chinesische Regierung erkannt, weshalb seit 1978 in diesem Bereich verstärkt Reformen in Verbindung mit einer schrittweisen Öffnung des Marktes für ausländische Investoren stattfanden. Problemstellung: Diese Entwicklungen sind auch westlichen Banken nicht verborgen geblieben und angesichts des enormen Potentials ist die Verlockung zu einem Markteintritt groß. Doch wie ist es tatsächlich um Chinas Finanzmarkt bestellt? Welche Chancen und Risiken ergeben sich für die Neueinsteiger? Lohnt sich dieser folgenschwere Schritt und wie soll er am besten vollzogen werden? In der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen Antworten auf diese Fragestellungen gefunden werden. Da Chinas Kapitalmärkte noch sehr ineffizient und im Aufbau begriffen sind, soll der Fokus auf Retail und Corporate Banking gelegt werden, während das Investment Banking eher am Rande betrachtet wird. Da sich beide Bereiche hinsichtlich ihrer Chancen und Risiken ähneln, erfolgt im Weiteren keine strikte Trennung. Unterschiede und Besonderheiten werden vielmehr gesondert ausgewiesen. Gang der Arbeit: Um die spezifischen Eigenschaften von Chinas Finanzmarkt verstehen zu können, muss ein erster Blick der Geschichte der chinesischen Bankenlandschaft gelten, der in Kapitel 2 gewährt wird. Im folgenden Kapitel 3 werden dann Chancen und Risiken erörtert und gegeneinander abgewogen. Hierbei ist zu beachten, dass die Relevanz der einzelnen Punkte stark von der Eintrittsstrategie eines Unternehmens abhängt, auf die in Kapitel 4 näher eingegangen wird. Hier möchte die vorliegende Arbeit die verschiedenen Optionen ausländischer Wettbewerber darstellen und evaluieren, um schließlich in Kapitel 5 in einer abschließenden Betrachtung die Ergebnisse zu bewerten und einen Ausblick zu geben.

This handbook highlights the important commitments that China has made to the international community and analyzes the potential impact of such commitments on China. Part I of the book outlines China's commitments to convert her economy from a centrally planned one to a free market one as far as cross-border movement of goods, services and personnel is concerned. It reproduces China's commitments in a tabular format to facilitate reading, and is supplemented with brief references to WTO regulations where appropriate so that readers get to know how China's commitments relate to WTO obligations. Part II examines the impacts of China's WTO membership as a whole and on her specific economic sectors. Part III consists of tables and figures selected from a report compiled by the US General Accounting Office, presenting some of the Office's analysis and findings of China's commitments on WTO accession. Appendix 1 lists all the legal instruments pertaining to China's accession to the WTO.

The first part of the book is entitled 'Family, Transition and Ageing' and addresses rapid social and economic changes in China through a kaleidoscope of differential perspectives that focus on how family continues to be an important reference point for the past, present and future institution in the care of older people. The second part of the book focuses on the tangible social forces associated with managing old age: 'Welfare, Consumption and Ageing'. This section is important in locating the structures and agents of power that are relevant to maintaining trust and social relations between older people, the Chinese State and its dualism of state welfare and consumption of welfare.

Managing Instability on China's Periphery

In comparison to the more familiar sources of friction in U.S.-China relations-notably Taiwan and Tibet-surprisingly little attention has been given to how developments along China's unstable periphery could strain and even potentially cause a serious rupture in bilateral relations. Certainly, there has been no systematic effort to examine and compare the most likely cases or to consider how the latent risks can be lessened. As a general observation, scholars and analysts in both countries tend to focus on specific subregions rather than engage in crossregional comparative assessments. With the goal of encouraging a broader assessment of potential sources of friction in U.S-China relations and how they might be mitigated, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) embarked on this study, "Managing Instability on China's Periphery." Each paper considers current sources of instability, potential crisis triggers, U.S. and Chinese interests-where they converge and diverge-and policy options for preventing a major crisis and mitigating the consequences.

"All of these forty-one foreign officials have profound understanding and research on China. This book contains the interviews with these officials. All of their talks, imbued with their ponderings, can be understood from the global and historical perspectives. The topics involved in these interviews cover international financial crisis, human rights, livelihood issues, environment, cultural spread, and China's pattern and road. Their answers finally resolve this book's core question-how we should look upon the ninety years' history and stragies of the Chinese Communist Party, the world's largest party in power"--Jacket.

Protecting Privacy in China

A Research on China’s Privacy Standards and the Possibility of Establishing the Right to Privacy and the Information Privacy Protection Legislation in Modern China

Today, privacy is one of the most hotly debated topics worldwide. The book aims to balance the development of personal rights in a country that has historically valued collective rights over those of the individual. The protection of privacy is not an issue that has been emphasised during the rapid development of economic laws in China. However, the accompanying development of greater government-based regulation of these laws’ implementation has led to greater invasions of personal privacy. This study attempts to provide a way forward for China to address the ever-increasing concerns about the protection of privacy and puts forward a legislative model for protection. This is achieved after a thorough analysis of the threats to privacy protection in China, a critical evaluation of the level of current privacy protection in China, and an analysis of the privacy laws in a series of developed nations based on common law and civil law.

When the Chinese Communist Party came to power in 1949, Mao Zedong declared that "not even one person shall die of hunger." Yet some 30 million peasants died of starvation and exhaustion during the Great Leap Forward. Eating Bitterness reveals how men and women in rural and urban settings, from the provincial level to the grassroots, experienced the changes brought on by the party leaders' attempts to modernize China. This landmark volume lifts the curtain of party propaganda to expose the suffering of citizens and the deeply contested nature of state-society relations in Maoist China.
