Communist China's Foreign Policy

Excerpt

This work is based on research undertaken in the Department of International Relations at the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Australian National University during 1959-61. The final draft was written during the first half of 1961, when much speculation had begun about the future of China's relations with the Soviet Union. The author hopes that he has made some contribution to Western and free Asian understanding of the alliance between these two leading Communist powers.

The use of the word "China" throughout the text is not to be taken as a criticism of the position of the Chinese Nationalist Government on Taiwan, or as an implied plea for wider official recognition of the Chinese Communist government. The formal title of the Chinese Communist regime, viz., the Chinese Peoples Republic, is not used.

Western policies towards the Chinese Communist government are considered in the final chapter. It has been the author's intention to assess first the outlook and objectives of the Chinese Communist system.

In the notes, the official Chinese Communist information service, the New China News Agency, is referred to by the customary abbreviation, NCNA.
