This study examines China's irredentist ambitions from a Realist perspective. It disputes the notion that China is a threat; that the leadership aspires to become a regional hegemon; and that China is using its growing economic power base to develop an offensive military force. Rather, this study contends that China's push to attain territorial integrity reflects a search for survival and security, both externally and internally. Not only does Beijing aim to preserve a favorable and safe external security orientation, but the leadership also aims to maintain internal stability and control, as well as sustain a rational drive to continue its economic reforms. These arguments are supported by three case studies, which include the South China Sea, Taiwan and Diaoyutai Islands
