Description

In the past thirty years China has transformed from an impoverished country where peasants comprised the largest portion of the populace to an economic power with an expanding middle class and more megacities than anywhere else on earth. This remarkable transformation has required and will continue to demand massive quantities of resources. Like every other major power in modern history China is looking outward to find them. In By All Means Necessary Elizabeth C. Economy and Michael Levi explore the unrivaled expansion of the Chinese economy and the global effects of its meteoric growth. China is now engaged in a far-flung quest hunting around the world for fuel ores water and land for farming and deploying whatever it needs in the economic political and military spheres to secure the resources it requires. Chinese traders and investors buy commodities with consequences for economies people and the environment around the world. Meanwhile the Chinese military aspires to secure sea lanes and Chinese diplomats struggle to protect the country's interests abroad. And just as surely as China's pursuit of natural resources is changing the world - restructuring markets pushing up commodity prices transforming resource-rich economies through investment and trade - it is also changing China itself. As Chinese corporations increasingly venture abroad they must navigate various political regimes participate in international markets and adopt foreign standards and practices which can lead to wide-reaching social and political ramifications at home. Clear authoritative and provocative By All Means Necessary is a sweeping account of where China's pursuit of raw materials may take the country in the coming years and what the consequences will be - not just for China but for the whole world.

Review:
The structure and content of the book is well crafted and balanced with representative examples from the field and from previous research, to clarify and dispel certain myths about Chinas eager acquisition of raw materials. Students and professionals of China and Americas foreign policy and security policy will find this book to be an instrumental read for a detailed analysis of the many facets of Chinas changing resource strategy.
