Communist and Post-Communist Studies 1 December ; 53 4 : — Confucian friendship adds to the literature on friendship distance sensibilities and aims to maintain and even reinforce the Confucian ethical order, whereas contemporary international politics fails to provide any clear ethical order. The use of friendship and the concomitant creation of a friendly role by China indicate an intended move away from the improper order, including the tributary system, the Cold War, imperialism, and socialism.

In this respect, as Roger Beaumont has quipped, there is something quite paradoxically implicit in any attempt to conclude the observation of a complex and constantly moving target — especially one as dynamic as China and its expanding international relations. The sequential unfolding of uncertainties, dilemmas, and contingencies works against focusing analysis and drawing neat conclusions on a research subject that keeps on evolving and altering the patterns and trajectories of its international outlook, as well as the contexts to which it is being applied.

Modern warfare is becoming increasingly defined by distance. Today, many Western and non-Western states have shied away from deploying large numbers of their own troops to battlefields. Instead, they have limited themselves to supporting the frontline fighting of local and regional actors against non-state armed forces through the provision of intelligence, training, equipment and airpower.
