The Empire's New Clothes: Cultural Particularism and Universal Value in China's Quest for Global Status. "The Empire's New Clothes" is an exploration of the ways in which China's entry into international society has reshaped its identity. The book looks at how coercive enrolment into the world of sovereign states shapes China's attitudes towards sovereignty and human rights, and the difficult manner through which China has adapted itself to the rule of law. This process continues to affect the ways in which China approaches globalization.
The book ends with a discussion about how China will manage its rise with special relevance to Sino-American relations. This book assesses the challenge to the dominance of Euro American political and economic liberalism from China's emergence as a global presence. It does so by exploring China's search for a balance between competition and integration in the global community. The paradox of resistance to global domination lies in the requirements of accumulating power locally in order to resist power globally.
China presents the most significant present day example of this dual process of participation and resistance, and so Paltiel's work in this book offers intriguing insights into the elusive prospect of equality in a system of global power. Jeremy Paltiel is Associate Professor of Political Science at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, and a Research Associate of the Asian Institute at the Munk Centre for International Studies, Trinity College, University of Toronto.
He has published widely on Chinese topics, including the Chinese Communist Party, civil-military relations in China, and Chinese culture and human rights.
