China's long-term maritime history has been overlooked by the scholarly world, creating a misconception that the Chinese were sea- or ocean-phobic. This image has been promoted rather deliberately because a sailing-aversive China would fit in well with the non-capitalist development framework. This study shows that from 2100 B.C. to A.D. 1900, the Chinese were as enthusiastic about and capable of seagoing activities as other peoples. But maritime activities in China raise two paradoxes: these activities were incompatible with the agrarian dominance of the Chinese premodern economy, and there was a huge gap between Chinese maritime potential and maritime growth.

For many observers of international politics, the classical gold standard is the premier example of successful international monetary cooperation. Curiously, most studies portray this 19th century system as a spontaneous development. Reti, after a thorough investigation of diplomatic records, argues that the gold standard grew out of several years of international negotiation. Using theories of international regimes, he explains the roles of hegemonic power, domestic politics, and causal beliefs on conference diplomacy, and asserts that the classical gold standard can best be understood as a coordination game in which negotiations informed nations about how to cooperate.
