About this Item

No additional printings. The original. Black buckram (cloth) boards, yellow decorated wrap-around spine label, lt. shelf wear. Pages fine, clean. Bind fine; hinges intact. What are China's objectives in world affairs and what course will it pursue to achieve their goals? These are the questions of vital concern to the Western democracies, questions that can be approached intelligently only from a knowledge of how China's foreign policy has developed. In this illuminating and carefully documented book, Professor Levi analyzes China's attitudes and actions toward the rest of the world and clarifies many motivations behind its behavior, past and present. He traces the development of their foreign relations from the beginning of the modern era of contacts with Westerners, a little more than hundred years ago. The emphasis, however, is on the twentieth century, and particularly on the years since the peace settlements of World War I. The complex balance of relationships between China and the United States, on the one hand, and China and the Soviet Union, on the other, since the end of World War II is discussed in detail. Communist doctrine, notwithstanding its apparent rigidity, is shown to be a conveniently adjustable tool, capable of adaptation to the needs and strategies of present-day China. An integral part of the account is the attempt to single out and interpret the internal forces -- cultural, social, and economic -- that have influenced and shaped China s external policies. Thus, it is shown that the determinants of China s foreign policy have often been pressures and complexities within the country and that understanding of the Chinese people and their traditions is essential to nations in their dealings with them. 399 pages.
