The book explores developments in Russia-China relations in the
aftermath of the global economic crisis, arguing that the crisis
transformed their bilateral affairs, regional liaisons and,
crucially, altered the roles both states play on the international
arena. Discussing how Russo-Chinese cooperation has accelerated in
energy trade, arms sales and in the Russian Far East, the focus is
on how the still mutually advantageous relationship has become more
asymmetric than ever, reflecting China's meteoric rise and Russia's
decline. These dynamics are explored through three perspectives:
domestic, regional and global. Domestically, the book traces the
role of political coalitions and key interest groups involved in
how the two states shape their reciprocal policies. Changes in the
regional dimension are examined with particular reference to a new
status quo emerging in Central Asia. The book concludes by
explaining how the changing relationship is affecting the
international order, including the balance of power vis-a-vis the
United States as well as Russia and China's changing attitudes
towards global governance.
