In this thesis, the current international order and China's position within it is assessed in order to place it within a hierarchy of states. After concluding that China has increased its relative power within the global order, its satisfaction with various elements of the international system is discussed. Tammen and Kugler's model for assessing satisfaction is used to determine if China is at present a "status quo" state, and whether it might have revisionist intent in the future. Compliance with international norms, economic integration, military modernization, territorial disputes and the role of ideology are assessed to predict whether China is in fact satisfied with the distribution of benefits within the global system. This thesis concludes with a discussion of the implications of an increasingly powerful China, able to demand more benefits from the system that the United States developed. Several policy recommendations are made in the conclusion that generally advise that the United States continue to integrate China into the global order and to maintain its position as the dominant state, guiding the international relations dialogue and shaping China's influence on it.
