All things being equal, power transition theory would expect a rapid rise to be more destabilizing. But power transition theory would also expect that if the power potential of the challenger is either too small or ‘so large that its dominance, once it becomes industrialized, is virtually guaranteed’ then things are likely to be more stable (Organski 1958: 334–7). Intriguingly, China’s rise is both rapid and seemingly endless, making predictions of its impact on regional stability more difficult.

China’s ‘new’ great power identity It is increasingly apparent that China is now pursuing a great power role in world affairs. In some ways this is nothing new, as China has been interested in playing such a role since the inception of the People’s Republic in 1949.
