Generalissimo Jiang Kaishek presided over a republican China until 1949, when he was forced by Mao led communist party to flee to the Island of Formosa (Taiwan) where his dynasty ruled before it became democratic in early 1990s. For almost 30 years China kept her door closed and had diplomatic relations with a handful of countries. But in the late 1970s China opened its door to foreigners and embraced the prevailing market system in the western world. Now in the 21st century it is attempting to create a new world order with the muscle power of its resources and state capitalism. Now the question ha sbeen asked will China create a totally new world order, or it will embrace the existing one and make a substantive contribution to maintain peace and stability. Especially in the post financial crisis era, and with the end of Western era in sight, the ideological dominance of the West is under challenge. After having arrived at the world stage as the economic power house, and by launching development banks and strategy like “One Belt One Road”, China is striving to build an alternative to the Western world order based on Confucian tradition. In this brief monograph the author reviews the current Chinese domestic political situation and attempts to predict its impact on the emergence of China as an alternative to the Western World order.
