Summary
  • This book surveys the foreign relations of the People's Republic of China from 1949 to 2014. It synthesizes more narrowly focused secondary academic literature while drawing on memoirs of key Chinese leaders to form a mosaic overview of PRC foreign relations. Chronologically organized as narrative history, it follows PRC cooperative and conflictual alignments from the early alliance with the Soviet Union through Mao's quest for world revolution, rapprochement with the United States and opening to the outside world, through the anticommunist upheavals of 1989✹1991, to the Chinese Communist Party's efforts to survive in the post✹Cold War era. The powerful role of domestic determinants of China's foreign policy is a theme uniting treatment of three broad periods of Chinese foreign relations. In the Mao era, the imperative was revolution: destroying capitalism and instituting Stalinist socialism in China, swift socialist construction, and preventing Chinese socialism from succumbing to foreign and domestic revisionism. During the first decade of Deng Xiaoping's rule, the dominant imperative shaping China's foreign relations was an effort to relegitimize CCP rule via rapid improvements in standards of living. After the global crisis of communism in 1989✹1991, the dominant domestic imperative became the survival of China's CCP state in a world dominated by US unipolarity and swept by liberal ideas borne by immensely powerful new communications technologies. This trajectory has created the China of today: an authoritarian state viewing itself besieged by a hostile "West" but emerging as a global economic and military power.--
  • 'China's Quest', the result of over a decade of research, writing, and analysis, is both sweeping in breadth and encyclopedic in detail--
