Relations between the European Union and China have grown at a sustained pace across the board in recent times, transforming the relationship from one of previous neglect into a matter of global strategic significance. This book offers an examination of the evolution of contemporary EU-China relations in the economic, technological and high politics dimensions, including implications of the high-tech and security-related elements of the relationship (space and satellite navigation cooperation; advanced technology transfers; arms sales, including the proposal to lift the EU arms embargo on China) for the United States and its East Asian allies. The analysis of EU-China relations is placed in the context of evolving dynamics in transatlantic relations on the one hand, and East Asia's major powers' changing security perceptions on the other. With this approach, this study intends to provide the reader with a better understanding of the global significance acquired by Sino-European relations, while also raising the question as to whether, and to what extent, the promotion of EU space and defence interests in China has made the EU a novel strategic factor in East Asia. This book contributes to current debates on the emerging global order, including discussions of how European and Chinese policy makers would perceive the post-Cold War international system, evaluate the place and role of their countries in it, and appraise the policies to be adopted to maintain global competitiveness in key strategic industrial sectors and increase political autonomy in an international environment characterised by US primacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...an essential read. * Seifudein Adem, Asia Pacific World *
Remaking Global Order is an excellent read for those interested in the balance of power triangle between the United States as the hegemon, and the European Union and China as the most prominent second tier challengers. * Miguel Otero-Iglesias, International Affairs *
The author's ability to bring multiple analytical and empirical perspectives to bear on the EU-China nexus gives this book its strength. He integrates a wide literature (with a strong focus on IR) and secondary sources with primary sources based on interviews with an impressive range of key informants. Indeed, this reviewer would have liked to hear more of the interviewees' voices. Casarini achieves an interpretive narrative explanation of causal pathways to a specific outcome and the value of this book lies in its ability to link the EU's multiple faces in international relations with the evolution of the global system in parallel national, bilateral and multilateral processes. * Maureen Benson-Rea, University of Auckland, writing for Journal of Common Market Studies *
