In a highly globalized world, neighbours near and far can be connected through the Internet. International affairs, therefore, are no longer distant happenings to the general public. The tremendous changes that have taken place in Mainland China in the past three decades have profoundly affected world politics. In particular, after the “9/11 terrorist attacks”, “the financial tsunami”, and the U.S. pivot to Asia in recent years, academics have observed drastic changes in world order and diplomacy brought about by these events. The world has also been interested in the way the governments of Greater China have been meeting various challenges, and research is badly needed to understand these changes and to examine the means by which international confrontations might be handled and international cooperation and reconciliation achieved.
