The foreign relations of the People's Republic of China have gone through dramatic change since 1949. The strong-man rule of Mao Zedong and the Chinese Communist Party leader's dominance of Chinese foreign policy decision making for three decades witnessed dramatic swings in alignment, repeated and strong commitments to revolutionary goals and ideals, and spasms of destructive mass campaigns within China that spilled over to impact Chinese foreign relations. Contrastingly, as China emerged in the 21st century as an economic and military power second only to the United States, the new generations of Chinese leaders followed collaborative and consultative patterns of foreign policy making at home and abroad, seeking to sustain into the coming decades the generally favorable recent international circumstances seen as providing a prolonged period of "strategic opportunity" for China's economic and broader national development.

Historical Dictionary of Chinese Foreign Policy covers the more than 60 years of the foreign policy of the People's Republic of China. It provides reliable and comprehensive information and assessments about the major actors, developments, and other aspects of the foreign policy and foreign relations of the People's Republic of China. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries dealing with important individuals, events, and other aspects of the foreign policy of this important country. It is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Chinese foreign policy.

About the Author:

Robert G. Sutter was an analyst of Asian and Pacific affairs and American foreign policy for the U.S. government for thirty years. He is now Professor of Practice of International Affairs, Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University.

Review:

The core of this dictionary by Sutter comprises 500-plus short and medium-length entries on significant concepts, institutions, people, places, and events in the foreign affairs of the People's Republic of China. Although a small number of entries deal with Chinese history before 1949, most of the content concerns events since the Chinese Communist Party took control of the Chinese mainland. Chinese relations with practically every part of the world garner some coverage, but relations with the US, tensions with Taiwan, and the Chinese government's foreign policy establishment attract most of Sutter's attention. The book begins with a chronology and concise survey of China's foreign relations, and closes with a substantial bibliography and bibliographic essay. The entries are very clear but tend to be basic, making the dictionary most appropriate for undergraduates engaging in their first forays into the subject. ... Recommended. (CHOICE)

The author is well qualified with a broad history background and presents concepts relevant to the country. This book would be extremely important for anybody that is working in the Chinese foreign policy arena and would also be interesting to business people setting up branches in China. In fact, it would be helpful to people who are going to travel in China. It should be in all libraries that have an international focus. (American Reference Books Annual)

Among all the nations of the world, China possesses the greatest population, the largest armed forces, and (for the present) the second-largest economy. These facts alone would be enough to oblige all students of international affairs to take an interest in China, and therefore to justify many libraries in purchasing this informative dictionary. (s)
