Domestic Voices of Aspiring Powers
This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to examine different domestic worldviews of foreign policy within five aspiring powers—China, India, Iran, Japan, and Russia. It then explores the role of worldviews in the study of foreign policy, creates a framework to compare foreign policy worldviews or schools of thought across aspiring powers, and assesses some of the shifts in domestic debates within aspiring powers and their impact on US and other great power relations. Examples are drawn from the individual country chapters, which reveal for the first time the complexity and richness of domestic debates about worldviews, even in authoritarian states such as China, Russia, and Iran.
