Under the ambitious leadership of President Xi Jinping, China is zealously transforming its wealth and economic power into potent tools of global political influence. But China's foreign policy initiatives, even the vaunted "Belt and Road," will be shaped and redefined as they confront the ground realities of local and regional politics outside China. In his new book, China's Western Horizon, SAIS DC Professor Daniel Markey takes a close look at the evolution of China's role in South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East. He examines how the interests and aspirations of states in these regions are likely to intersect with China's evolving role. He finds that China's deepening involvement is most likely to play to the advantage of regional strongmen and to exacerbate political tensions within and among Eurasian states.

DANIEL S. MARKEY

Daniel S. Markey is Senior Research Professor at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and Academic Director of the Master of Arts in Global Policy.

Markey's latest book, China's Western Horizon: Beijing and the New Geopolitics of Eurasia, published by Oxford University Press in March 2020, assesses the evolving political, economic, and security links between China and its western neighbors, including Pakistan, India, Kazakhstan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Iran. Markey explains what these changes are likely to mean for the United States and recommends steps that Washington should take in response.

From 2007-2015, Markey was a senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations. While there, he wrote a book on the future of the US-Pakistan relationship No Exit from Pakistan: America's Tortured Relationship with Islamabad, Cambridge University Press, 2013. From 2003 to 2007, Markey held the South Asia portfolio on the Secretary's Policy Planning Staff at the US Department of State. Before entering government service, he taught in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. At Princeton, he also served as executive director of Princeton's Research Program in International Security. Earlier, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard's Olin Institute for Strategic Studies.

Markey is the author of numerous reports, articles, book chapters, and opinion pieces. His commentary has been featured widely in US and international media.
