Overview

Chapters

Reviews

This volume brings together young scholars from China, Russia, the United States, and Western Europe who, drawing on much newly available documentation, analyze the complicated and often stormy history of the Sino-Soviet relationship from World War II to the 1960s. The book offers new insights and many revaluations of the various apsects of the alliance between China and the Soviet Union—its creation, aims and instruments, its strains and conflicts, and its final collapse. Revising earlier views, the contributors emphasize the role of ideology and cultural aspects of interaction, the links between alliance policies and domestic politics, and the way the partners' differing perceptions of the United States influenced the fate of the alliance.
