Summary "Bringing together a team of cutting-edge researchers based in Hong Kong, Taiwan and other Asia-Oceania countries, this book focuses on the tug of war between China's influence and forces of resistance in Hong Kong, Taiwan and selected countries in the surrounding regions. China's influence has met growing defiance from citizens who fear the extinction of their valued local identities. However, the book shows that resistance to China's influence is a global phenomenon, varying in motivation and intensity from region to region and country to country depending on the forms of China's influence and the balances of forces in each society. The book also advances an integrated theoretical framework for broadly operationalizing different forms of offshore Chinese influence mechanisms, ranging from economic, military and diplomatic influences to united front operations. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of comparative politics, international relations, geopolitics, Chinese politics, Hong Kong-China relations, Taiwan, and Asian politics"-- Provided by publisher.
