Description: China–South Korea Relations in the New Era
The major ideas presented in this book have been developed during my research on Chinese foreign policy and international relations in East Asia. There are many people to thank for helping me finish this project. First of all, I want to thank the Academy of Korean Studies. This work is supported by the Academy of Korean Studies grant funded by the Korean government (MEST) (AKS-2012-AAZ-2101).

Description: China–South Korea Relations in the New Era
Despite their close historical ties, cultural affinities, and geographic proximity, China and South Korea had been living in two dangerously hostile worlds for decades after the end of World War II. The iron curtain of the Cold War as well as the reminiscence of the atrocious Korean War (1951–1953) virtually blocked all direct contacts between the two countries. To make the situation even...

In many aspects, the process of China–South Korea rapprochement in the 1980s and diplomatic normalization in the early 1990s portrayed a textbook example of conventional diplomacy: leaders of the two nations carefully weighed the economic and political benefits and costs, cautiously controlled the pace and scope of their interactions, and finally clinched a deal after rounds of negotiations...

Of all those heatedly debated issues in China–South Korea relations, perhaps the most puzzling topic is the sharp contrast between their “hot” economic and relatively “chilly” political relations in recent years. As introduced in previous chapters, economic cooperation has always been the most active and positive force and constantly pushes the bilateral...

Since the devastating Korean War, “hard” military conflicts have been largely absent in Sino–South Korean relations. Except for some extremely rare scenarios, military clashes can be generally ruled out as a concern for the foreseeable future. However, recent China–South Korea relations have been constantly plagued by what Chung (2009b) called “soft” clashes:...

So far, Sino–South Korean relations are analyzed without considering the external influences from other regional or global players. However, no bilateral relations develop in vacuum. This is particularly true for Sino–South Korean relations. As introduced in the first chapter, one of the main features of the bilateral relationship is its vulnerability to influences from third parties....

Description: China–South Korea Relations in the New Era
Scholars and policy makers always warily watch China’s quick rise in the new century, worrying the looming power transition can end the long peace since the Second World War. On the other hand, the Chinese government repeatedly assures its neighbors and the whole world of China’s commitment to a peaceful rise. In this circumstance, Sino–South Korean relations function as a...
