China's Quest for Great Power investigates China's national security strategy through foreign policy, energy security, and naval power, and their influence on China-US relations. With Beijing requiring reliable energy access and a strong navy, the People's Liberation Army-Navy (PLAN) protects China's regional maritime interests. The relationship between China and the US is crucial globally and depends on shared and divergent interests. China's trading economy and naval ambitions demand effective diplomacy and global engagement. The book examines how naval modernization and energy security will impact China's future foreign policy decisions. (Courtesy Graphic)
