Markus B. Liegl is a PhD candidate at the Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany.
"[...]Liegl's work has the combined merit of expanding scholarly debates on the role of 'emotions' in IR and providing a sophisticated explanation for the role of status and standing in Chinese foreign policy. The timely topic and the author's rigorous analyses further contribute to make the book particularly appealing to any scholar interested in exploring and understanding the various geopolitical implications of China's rise in the current world."--Mauro Barelli, Journal of Conflict and Security Law
