Abstract

[This book advances a coherent statement of defensive realism. By doing so, I seek to serve two purposes. First, I provide a menu of strategic choices for statesmen. Because the world has firmly evolved from an offensive realism world in the past to a defensive realism world in which we live today (Tang 2009b),1 defensive realism is an appropriate guide for security strategy in our time. Indeed, unless all the major powers are firmly “socialized” into defensive realist states, a neoliberalism world—that is, a more rule-based international politics—will not come into existence. For policymakers who are more interested in the strategic choices within defensive realism, they can move directly to chapter 4 and 5, and refer to other chapters when they need further clarifications.2]
