Example text

The zeal with which Chinese embraced Marxism-Leninism is an expression of these yearnings of purpose and greatness, and the desire to make the Chinese revolution a paradigm for the World Revolution—“the countryside surrounding the city”—is part of the Chinese aspirations to be full participants in the creation of projects of universal value. It is China that will lead the rural Third World to its liberation, because it is China, at least since the end of WWI that is uniquely suited to this task.

By weighing official Chinese responses to sovereignty and international norms against scholarly and professional opinions expressed within the Chinese “public,” my book balances the limits of what is practical at present with the latent possibilities of engagement for the future. I conclude by reviewing the role that sovereignty has played in conforming Chinese interests to global norms and values. The central question is whether China’s achievement of greater material success will attenuate or accentuate competition with the West in general and the United States in particular.

16 Great powers gain authority through their compliance with the primary norm of sovereignty toward non-peers. 17 Stephen Krasner dissents. He views sovereignty as organized hypocrisy: states, especially great powers, pay only lip service to norms while pursuing their “real” interests. Great powers habitually intervene in the domestic affairs of non-peers because the “logic of consequences” (anarchy) trumps the “logic of appropriateness” (norms of sovereignty). Even though great powers do infringe on the sovereignty of other states when their interests so require, sovereignty is nonetheless far from a hollow or hypocritical concept.
