Exploring Sino-Japanese Militarized Conflict Behavior in Northeast Asia: Considering the Applicability of Power Transition Theory

Power transition theory (PTT) has effectively explained the concept of war among great-power states and has successfully competed with the balance of power theory since Organski proposed it in 1958. PTT’s main argument is as follows: when one state’s power approaches that of another state and it is dissatisfied, it is highly likely that the state will initiate war. Lemke (2002) further applies PTT to regional wars and argues that PTT is powerful in explaining both hegemonic wars and regional wars. This paper follows Lemke’s definition of regional dyads and focuses on Northeast Asia.

Dual Transitions in Reformed China:Property Rights and the Case of Zhongguancun

The resilience of the communist regime in China has been a puzzle in the study of dual transitions. By examining the property rights regime in China’s high-tech sector, this article argues that the reason for China’s extraordinary economic growth without political liberalization lies in the process of the reassignment of property rights. With a view to helping state agencies avoid financial difficulty, high-tech spin-off enterprises and their associated hybrid property rights regimes created space for the old authority structure to remain in place.

Do They Mix? Residential Segregation of Taiwanese People in China

Previous studies on the experiences of Taiwanese people in China
often discuss whether they would gradually assimilate into the Chinese
society and identify themselves as being Chinese instead of being
Taiwanese. Since the issue of political identity and the relationship across
the Strait have caused disputes among people in Taiwan in the past decade,
it is difficult to explore their self-identification in China. Therefore, it is no
surprise that little consensus has been reached among researchers on this
issue.
