China and Southeast Asia, the Politics of Survival: A Study of Foreign Policy Interaction

Excerpt

China and Southeast Asia--The Politics of Survival was originally published in 1971, shortly before President Richard M. Nixon's trip to Peking. Much has happened since then to justify an updated edition of the book. I have refrained from making any changes in the original text so that readers may judge the validity of the conclusions and speculations of three years ago. My belief is that events since then tend strongly to confirm the assessment I made of the foreign policy motives and behavior of China and the three Southeast Asian states. The postscript I have added to the present edition makes the case for that belief.

I wish to thank Robert Herrick for research assistance in the preparation of the final chapter. I am also grateful to the Johns Hopkins University Press, and especially to one of its former editors, Kenneth Arnold, for taking an interest in my book and seeing the value of another edition.
