The Making of Eurasia: Competition and Cooperation Between China's Belt and Road Initiative and Russia


Add your own review!

Overview

The Making of Eurasia investigates the multi-layered spectrum of China and Russia's Eurasian policies towards each other, ranging from competition to cooperation, as well as the role of regional actors in between. The book examines the impact of and responses to the dynamic Sino-Russian interaction in the wake of China's Belt and Road initiative, focusing on the selected case studies of Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Uzbekistan, but also on inter-regional implications across the Eurasian space. With China's imprint on inter-regional politics and ambition to make a distinctive Chinese contribution to 'globalization' and Russia's vision of a 'Greater Eurasia' in which Moscow stakes out a place for itself as an indispensable power, other regional actors adopt policies that respond to and co-shape the resulting centrifugal forces. Meanwhile, power shifts are underway on a global plane, as the normative divide between Russia and the West has widened, and as the Sino-American rivalry is intensifying. The book therefore also sheds light on the effects of Eurasian power shifts on global governance in a context where global 'leadership' is contested, and in which the US and Europe are re-defining their relationship not only towards a self-confident China but also towards each other. As such, this study will provide valuable insight for students and scholars of Eurasian Asia Studies, Foreign Policy Analysis, and International Relations at large.

Reviews

Scholarly accounts of individual state perspectives on Eurasia are no longer sufficient. In this important book, Moritz Pieper analyzes the region as the interplay of Russia, China, and smaller actors. He places Eurasia in the context of regional, Central Asian, and global geopolitics. * Professor Andrei Tsygankov, San Francisco State University, USA * The Eurasian regional order is being transformed by China's Belt and Road Initiative and Russia's struggle to retain influence and engage China. But as this penetrating and well-researched study shows it also reflects the efforts of states such as Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Uzbekistan to assert influence and escape the weaknesses of their landlocked geography. This original book offers essential reading for all those seeking to understand this grand interplay of power and money around the new connectivity in Eurasia. * Professor Roy Allison, Oxford University, UK *
