Chinese Soft Power

February 21, 2011

Last week I went to Amazon and searched for soft power –  there are a stack of forthcoming books on soft power many of them about China.  Given my own scepticism about the usefulness of the concept I was interested to see that Shaun Breslin of Warwick University has just produced a paper on ‘The Soft Notion of China’s “Soft Power”‘ critiquing the lack of precision in the use of the concept.  It’s available here.
