Miller’s new book argues that elites in some states actively reframe their image when their economic and military power increases. The book draws from four historical cases (the United States, Meiji Japan, the Netherlands, and Cold War Japan) and applies the lessons from them to two major contemporary cases (China and India). It reshapes our understanding of what a rising power is, and why the ideational sources of their motivation – and not just material sources – are so important.
