「傅好文很了解這個國家,從歷史上說明中國和其鄰國的衝突」─紐約客雜誌

「傅好文處理了可能是現在,甚至是未來幾年最重要的問題」─伊恩‧布魯瑪,《零年:1945年,現代世界的夢想與夢碎之路》作者


一九七八年,中國開始改革和開放,數十個年頭之後,現在中國更是開始大刀闊斧,積極在世界強權中找到自己的位置,靠著擴張海軍勢力、頻頻宣示鄰近區域的主權、外交欺壓小國的方式,就是計畫要吃下亞洲區的大哥寶座。

要了解中國這些政策的背後意義,我們必須回溯歷史,從歷史中放大審視角度,從意識形態、哲學、政權等方面來研究,就可以知道中國希望成為怎樣的亞洲強權。

作者傅好文曾為紐約時報中美、加勒比海、西非與中非、日本、中國新聞部的主任,目前為哥倫比亞大學新聞研究所的教授,在豐富的記者經驗中,他花了許多時間研究中國的動態,讓本書中的內容更具說服力。

For many years after its reform and opening in 1978, China maintained an attitude of false modesty about its ambitions. That façade, reports former New York Times Asia correspondent Howard French, has now been cast off. China is increasingly asserting its place among the global powers, signaling its plans for pan-Asian dominance by building its navy, increasing territorial claims to areas like the South China Sea, and diplomatically bullying smaller players. Underlying this attitude is the millennia-old concept of tian xia, which held that everything “under the heavens” fell within the influence of the Chinese empire.
 
If we understand how this historical identity continues to color current actions, in ways ideological, philosophical, and even legal, we can learn to forecast just what kind of global power China stands to become—as the world order is poised to shift. Steeped in deeply researched history and on-the-ground reporting, this is French at his revelatory best.
