Overview

Xi Jinping, China's top leader, is an historical figure who is taking China onto the center stage of world.In the past few years, Xi Jinping has reshaped China. On corruption, he is impartial and merciless, refusing to do anything with relatives and friends, so that the most daring forecasters were amazed; On economic reform, he is bold and resolute, and won praise as the chief architect of China's economy; on military issues, he initiated the boldest reforms since the Chinese Communist Party has been in power and the Chinese military is rapidly becoming stronger.He is also known as the new geo-political master. Since AIIB (Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank) was established, the United States and Japan have suffered the biggest diplomatic setbacks for decades, dramatically changed the international financial landscape. His "One Belt & One Road" initiative will profoundly change the international balance and will have a more far-reaching impact than the "Marshall Plan"Calm, pragmatic, firm but gentle, he has his own principles, even with his North Korea ally, who once violated China's national interests. He resolutely established sanctions. In the South China Sea, while a series of China's islands were violated by other countries, he decided to approve large scale island reinforcement, at one fell swoop, changing the passive situation of the South China Sea. Xi Jinping is a great power leader who accepts the responsibility and has demonstrated the ability to make daring decisions. His books on governing China have sold in hundreds of countries all over the world. In his state visits to foreign countries, his casual speech and charm demonstrate soft power.Great Power Leader Xi Jinping: International Perspectives on China's Leader has been written from the perspective of politicians and the media towards Xi Jinping, showing Xi Jinping in areas of economic reform, anti-corruption, military re-building, "One Belt & One Road", and soft power initiatives in the Taiwan Strait, the South China Sea, and the Korean peninsula. Xi Jinping's approach to other hot issues are viewed objectively and prove the Chinese leader's responsibility and grasp of ambitious plans and great strategic ideas.To understand how the world looks at Xi Jinping, read the Great Power Leader Xi Jinping: International Perspectives on China's Leader.
