This essay seeks to address a fundamental question on the strategic behavior of states, asking whether it is power or ideas that contribute to the decision-making process. Strategic behavior can be broadly defined as the construction of a grand strategy in order to secure access to resources, create a market for goods, and for overall security, which may include regional hegemony.
With a brief overview of the scholarly literature on the theories of international politics, this essay then uses the case study of Chinato to demonstrate that offensive realism is the best theory to demonstrate how, at least in the case of China, power is the primary factor in strategic behavior.
There are many theories that exist in international politics to explain the strategic behaviors of states. The three that seem to exist most commonly in the literature include constructivism, liberalism, and realism. Constructivism commonly assumes that certain non-material factors e. In more recent literature, both constructivism and liberalism have become the dominant theories in describing the strategic behavior of certain countries.
Initially developed by John Mearsheimer in response to defensive realism, the term offensive realism suggests that the international system is primarily responsible for the increase of aggressive state behavior that exists within the realm of international politics.
Belonging to the school of neorealist school of thought, realism differs from both constructivism and liberalism because it focuses on the structural effect of material power-on state behavior. While it is acknowledged that there is a connection between offensive and defensive realism, offensive realism is the preferable option in analyzing the particular case of China see below because it focuses on the accumulation of power a state needs to maintain security.
Offensive realism takes a somewhat pessimistic view of world politics because it highlights the danger that exists as states attempt to maintain the highest level of security. This competition between nations to maintain security has the potential to lead to conflict and war, suggesting that strategic behavior comes from the need for security. While both constructivist and liberalist theories offer conventional explanations of state behavior, they do not offer the most convincing explanation about the strategic behavior of China.
China has considerably increased its military spending over the past several decades and this aligns with the realist notion that China is seeking relative power. Instead, the assumption is that nations, such as China, may change their wealth into military power in cases where other nations are not able to match such a move.
Based on this, China would have a strong incentive to boost its military budget and relinquish some economic prosperity if necessary. Yet in the case where military expenditures take priority over economic issues, both constructivists and liberals assert that China does not fit this criterion. Furthermore, China has not increased its military defenses in the case of nuclear build-up.
If realist theory were to be applied to China, constructivists argue, there would not be such a discrepancy between the nuclear military power of the United States and that of China. Finally, both constructivists and liberalists argue that when China does clash militarily with other nations, China takes steps to avoid an escalation of the conflict.
In order to demonstrate that realism actually is the theory that is best able to explain the strategic behavior of China, it is imperative to consider the five tenets of realism and to portray them in a way that applies specifically to China.
When considering the first and second tenets of offensive realism, these can be combined to appropriately explain the strategic behavior of a nation. Regional hegemony is broadly defined as the political, economic, or military control of one independently powerful state over neighboring states.
In a recent news article, Chris Horton provides Cambodia as an example of a neighboring country that is under the thumb of China. China has intervened so strongly in Cambodia, that the nation now relies so heavily on China for existence, resulting in complete control, such as in the case of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations ASEAN , where Cambodia effectively serves as a proxy vote for China.
China, as a nation, would deny this hegemony, claiming that its own constitution bans hegemonism baquanzhuyi. What is more likely, however, is that strategic behavior goes beyond what is claimed to be the law or what is reflected in words.
Keating that the US could have the east part of the Pacific and China would have the west. In order for China to actually put into action the plans of this Chinese admiral, they have needed to increase their military power. China has consistently built up its military in the post-Cold War period, investing more into their military forces than into all other areas of public welfare.
When considering the Gross Domestic Product GDP of China, it has been noted that the growth rate of military spending receiving an increasing share of the GDP, even though China has not been facing clear external threats from other nations. This is because, under the tenets of realism, states are always uncertain about what other states will do and will remain unsatisfied until regional hegemony is achieved. In the case of China, this is an example where they are clearly expressing a preference for military power over economic power.
Through this expenditure, China is demonstrating that they are in a position of relative power, which is seen as advantageous under offensive realism. Under liberalist theory, this fact becomes difficult to explain because they would argue that China wants the international environment to be peaceful in order to facilitate foreign trade and the draw of Foreign Direct Investment FDI as a means to sustain economic growth.
This would mean that China would have focused on economic prosperity at the expense of modernization of its military. This is because a large military generally dissuades other nations from economically investing.
This has been repeatedly demonstrated by China, first with Taiwan, and more recently with Hong Kong. In , the Taiwan Strait Crisis has China performing military exercises against Taiwan in order to circumvent the election of Tunghui Lee.
This is a clear indication that the liberalist ideology that has been applied to China is not one that is truly applicable to the Chinese context. These liberalists claim that internally, China was implementing tax reform systems that allowed for higher investment in the military, indicating that one justified the other.
In reality, military spending increases were growing several years prior to any sort of change to the tax system. Instead, China has focused on maintaining tight civilian control and political stability, as demonstrated most recently in Hong Kong.
China has made a strategic choice to create a power balance on the domestic front. This typically includes balancing both civilians and military leaders within the larger context of the nation. Furthermore, this type of behavior suggests that it is not the liberalist ideologies that should explain the strategic behavior of China, but rather those of offensive realism which most adequately explain the situation.
This essay considered the question as to whether it was power or ideas that were the foundation for the strategic power of nations. In order to make this determination, aspects of both constructivism and liberalism were considered, but because the topic required only one theory to be selected, it was explained that neither constructivism nor liberalism provided adequate factual evidence to apply to the Chinese context.
In contrast, through the five tenets of realism, the decision-making strategies of China and its use of force in both Taiwan and Hong Kong provided key evidence to demonstrate that offensive realism was an applicable theory in this case.
While it is acknowledged that China offers an obvious example of how power is the primary factor in the strategic behavior of nations, the examples may not necessarily be so clear-cut in all cases. It is for this reason that when attempting to apply theory broadly to the topic of strategic behavior, it is important to consider case studies that offer specific and useful examples to represent the probable outcome.

Conceptual Theory There are many theories that exist in international politics to explain the strategic behaviors of states. These include: The international system is anarchical and the great powers comprise the main actors in world politics; The offensive military capability exists in all states, to some extent; There is always a level of uncertainty about what other states will do; Survival is the primary goal among all states, and States are rational actors and this means that they will undertake decisions to maximize their prospects of survival.
Case Study While both constructivist and liberalist theories offer conventional explanations of state behavior, they do not offer the most convincing explanation about the strategic behavior of China. Conclusion This essay considered the question as to whether it was power or ideas that were the foundation for the strategic power of nations.

It is the first study of its kind, filling an important gap in the literature on rising Indian and Chinese power and American interests in Asia. The book creates a framework for the systematic and objective assessment of Chinese and Indian strategic behavior in four areas: 1 strategic culture- 2 foreign policy and use of force- 3 military modernization including defense spending, military doctrine, and force modernization - and 4 economic strategies including international trade and energy competition.

Gilboy , Eric Heginbotham. This book offers an empirical comparison of Chinese and Indian international strategic behavior. It is the first study of its kind, filling an important gap in the literature on rising Indian and Chinese power and American interests in Asia. The book creates a framework for the systematic and objective assessment of Chinese and Indian strategic behavior in four areas: 1 strategic culture; 2 foreign policy and use of force; 3 military modernization including defense spending, military doctrine, and force modernization ; and 4 economic strategies including international trade and energy competition. The utility of democratic peace theory in predicting Chinese and Indian behavior is also examined. The findings challenge many assumptions underpinning western expectations of China and India.
Арест и депортация Танкадо, широко освещавшиеся средствами массовой информации, стали печальным и позорным событием. Вопреки желанию Стратмора специалисты по заделыванию прорех такого рода, опасаясь, что Танкадо попытается убедить людей в существовании ТРАНСТЕКСТА, начали распускать порочащие его слухи. Энсей Танкадо стал изгоем мирового компьютерного сообщества: никто не верил калеке, обвиняемому в шпионаже, особенно когда он пытался доказать свою правоту, рассказывая о какой-то фантастической дешифровальной машине АНБ. Самое странное заключалось в том, что Танкадо, казалось, понимал, что таковы правила игры. Он не дал волю гневу, а лишь преисполнился решимости. Когда службы безопасности выдворяли его из страны, он успел сказать несколько слов Стратмору, причем произнес их с ледяным спокойствием: - Мы все имеем право на тайну.
