Is there a Chinese or for that matter Non Western theory of Internatinal Relations?

Does anyone know of an International Relations theory that is Chinese or Non western?
At a stretch you could perhaps consider Sun Zi as a realist and Mo Ti as a Liberalist (based on info from one of my current readings)... but this is still using western based theory to shoe horn their philosophies/theories into something we recognise... I am looking for something that describes similar ideas and relationships to western IR theory but that are homegrown so to speak. I fear that if there does exist something then it might be in response to western thought... although perhaps Confucianism could be considered IR theory if you brought it up to the international level... muck like Marxism perhaps... cheers all
