Summary

China's rapid economic growth in the recent decades has produced an unprecedented energy vulnerability that could threaten the sustainability of its economic development, a linchpin to social stability and ultimately the regime legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as well as the foundation for China's rising power aspirations. What is the Chinese perception of the energy security and challenges, how has the Chinese government enhanced its energy security by mobilizing both domestic and external resources? What are the international implications of China's search for energy security? This collection of contributions by leading scholars seeks answers to these extremely important questions. The book is divided into three parts. Part I presents an overview of China's sense of energy security and its strategic responses. Part II examines China's energy policy-making processes, the efforts to reform and reorganize the energy sector and reset policy priorities as well as the political and social constraints and the institutional limits to the energy sector reforms. Part III focuses on the international implications of China's search for energy security to see how the emerging energy diplomacy has brought about both opportunities for international cooperation and international conflict in relations with its Asian Pacific neighbors, the United States, and African countries. This book consists of articles published in the Journal of Contemporary China.
