With an economy and population that dwarf most industrialized nations, China is emerging as a 21st century global superpower. Even though China is an international leader in modern business and technology, its ancient history exerts a powerful force on its foreign policy. Christopher A.

Ford argues that despite its exposure to and experience of the modern world, China is still strongly influenced by a hierarchical view of political order.
