(BRI): An indication of China’s hegemonic intentions – conflicting evidence?’ 

This book looks at how China's Belt and Road intiative transforms domestic and regional dynamics. By displaying an overview on the major political-economic changes, the challenges China will face, the book attempts to integrate China's domestic and foreign policies for better understanding of their politico-economic policy formulation and strategies, and answer to what extent the Initiative would transform China and the region. The book also identifies some of the limitations of China’s Belt and Road Initiative despite its seemingly convincing economic goals for the region. It also explains why a few of the countries in the region i.e. India, are resisting the lure.
