Part I explores the implications of China's rise for the new law and development movement, and suggests that the success of China and other East Asian states offers important lessons for other developing countries, even if not all countries will be able to, or will want to, follow the East Asian Model ("EAM"). Part II explores the implications of China's rise for the human rights movement, focusing on the implications for civil and political rights, the right to development, global inequality, and humanitarian intervention. Part III considers whether China's rise will lead to geopolitical instability, and what can be done to prevent this. Part IV concludes with some thoughts on United States-China relations and the recent speech by Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick encouraging China to become a responsible stakeholder in the international order.
