The rise of China as a superpower is causing big concerns to Americans at present. “From the mid-1980s through the late 1990s China’s economy grew at a rate of approximately10% a year. From the late 1990s until 2005 its economy grew at 8% to 9% annually. In 2006 China’s annual growth rate was above 11%”…

“During 1997–2005, the PRC’s average annual growth rate in real GDP was 8.9%. During the forecast period of 2005–2010, it was assumed that the PRC continued its historical growth trend of 8.9% per year” . It should be noted that no other country in the world have currently registered such huge economic growth rate. Even amidst global financial crisis, Chinese economy stood well which clearly suggests that China is on the right track to become a not only a regional hegemony but also a global power in near future itself.
According to McEachern (2009), “the world’s richest country, United States has $ 246 trillion trade deficit with China at present” . Even though China’s prospects to become a global power are extremely bright, some people argue that China’s claims are far from realities. In their opinion, China is deliberately exaggerating the figures to convince the external world that they are going to be the next global power. Unemployment problems, corruption and the increasing gap between the rich and poor are some of the major problems which are preventing China’s progress towards a superpower status. This paper analyses the arguments in favor and against China’s rise to be the next regional hegemony....
They gave more focus to establish strong relations with communist countries such as Soviet Union and Cuba in the 70’s and 80’s. Chinese leader Mao was so much adamant in his attitude towards capitalist countries. On the other hand, Deng, the leader who succeeded Mao restructured China’s foreign policies and economic policies which paved way for China’s leap towards economic progress. Deng was so particular in opening China’s economy much widely to foreign direct investments and he realised that it was difficult for China like heavily populated country to develop properly with the help of internal resources alone. Even though globalization was treated suspiciously by China earlier, they quickly realised the opportunities and made necessary changes in its economic policies to accommodate the needs of globalization. Moreover, Deng started to trust western leaders more and more and he redefined China’s foreign policies cleverly to suit the needs of western countries. Currently China is the number one exploiter of globalization. Moreover, foreign direct investments in China are more than that in any other countries in the world. It should be noted that earlier, China was not much keen in allowing foreign enterprises to function on its soil. However, at present China is doing everything necessary for the safe functioning of foreign organizations in its soil. Gao (2005) has mentioned that “the industry sector has relieved from the complete dominance of the government and lot of small scale industries under private ownership has been developed as part of the reformation process”5. Earlier, the dominance of communism was evident everywhere in China’s business and trade sector.

With the constant consumption of these resources at an alarming pace, depletion of natural resources is becoming a very renowned term. Retaining the planet’s vitality is proportional to the resources we conserve. The pattern of resource consumption in China is such that it is consuming resources like farmland, water and timber with twice more frequency than their efforts directed towards these resources’ renewal for development purposes.
China becomes a prime candidate for this race exclusively on the basis of the presence of several factors. With the growing strength not just of China’s resources but also their economic wealth along with their impressive population size, military strength and their possession of sophisticated nuclear armaments China is well on its way towards becoming the next global superpower in the world.
However, when one undertakes a thorough analysis of the varied socio-economic, cultural and military attributes that go into the rise of a superpower, China no doubt emerges as a prospective candidate to be a superpower of the future. Before embarking a discussion specifically in a China-centric context, it will be really pragmatic to delineate the salient characteristics of a superpower.
This essay is concerned with the exploratory voyages of Chinese Muslim Zheng He, and why this did not lead to Chinese hegemony. It considers the differences between these expeditions and those of other medieval explorers such as Vasco de Gama, and how Zheng He’s achievements are now being interpreted.
A hegemon is referred to as state ruler. On the other hand, education can be defined as the process through which knowledge and information is transmitted to the next generation (Brandt, 1986). This paper will focus on the effects of hegemony to the individuals at the elementary level of education.
Central to the discussion in this field is the concept called hegemony and polarity.
In this paper, I will be exploring the concept of hegemony and unipolarity with the goal of determining how the lone superpower, the United States, is to be regarded. The discussion would involve the thoughts of many scholars but I would be making more use of four rather prominent scholars namely William Thompson, David Wilkinson, George Modelski and Donald Puchala.
The member nations were third world countries that had up to that time relied heavily on foreign markets, and one of the goals of regionalism was to combine the resources of the countries and convert them from five individual weak entities into one strong entity capable of
United States of America is undoubtedly the sole super power now and is trying to remain on top by all means, but it has been learned from the history that every rise has a fall. China is the next most capable country
