Scholars such as Conable and Lampton (1992/93), Funabashi, Oksenberg and Weiss (1994) and Lieberthal (1995) have focused their attention on the positive impact of economic reform on political change in China. As China becomes more prosperous, they argue, its emerging middle class will demand more political freedom and a greater degree of participation in the decision-making process. Indeed, economic decentralization and increasing competition for economic benefits among different groups, organizations and regions have resulted in the rise of interest group politics in the PRC.

Liberals see China’s gradual reemergence as an influential player in the international system as primarily a consequence of its successful economic reform and open door policy over the past two decades. A China that is committed to reform and trade should, in their view, be welcomed by the international community, for economic change will gradually transform the country into a more open and democratic one that will in turn be a stabilizing force in Asia-Pacific and global security. Scholars such as Conable and Lampton (1992/93), Funabashi, Oksenberg and Weiss (1994) and Lieberthal (1995) have focused their attention on the positive impact of economic reform on political change in China.

Swaine and Tellis examine Chinese security perceptions and strategies in both historical and contemporary contexts.
