Dr. Algieri analyzes China's Power in Militär Aktuell

How much power does China really have?

Dr. Franco Algieri (Webster Faculty)  analyzes the ability of China to project power in his article, "Wie Viel Macht Hat China Wirklich" for Militär Aktuell (4/2013), an Austrian military magazine.

The military budget of China is increasingly used to claim that China intends to play the role of a hegemon, Algieri notes, and hypothetical conflict scenarios with a highly armed People’s Republic have become a preoccupation for certain Asian states, as well as the EU and the USA.
