This book explores China's perspective on sovereignty. The concept of sovereignty is universal, however, the understanding of it varies in different states and due to cultural backgrounds, history or the composition of ethnic groups. In order to comprehend China's current perspective on sovereignty, the author connects Chinese historical ideas with the current international society. She locates misunderstandings of China's past and present which could cause misjudgment of China's perspective on sovereignty. Hence, the author analyzes China's imperial history concerning sovereignty and foreign policies. She surveys the cultural, political, administrative and legal roots of the ancient empires because of their great influence on its current political arrangements. In addition, the study examines the divergence between the European and Chinese understanding on human rights.
