|Title: ||China's world; the foreign policy of a developing state|
|Author(s): ||Simmonds, John Derrington|
|Date published: ||1970|
|Publisher: ||Canberra : Australian National University Press|
|Description: ||Many books have been written about the Communist regime in China and its foreign policy. This is the first to approach the subject from the basis of domestic affairs. The author, with his special knowledge of contemporary China, has combined a study of the viceministerial structure of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with an examination of fundamental domestic developmental factors during the period 1949 to 1968. The book fills a gap in an understanding of China' s foreign policy - the effect that China's basically agrarian nature has on overall development policy and hence on external affairs. Though primarily of interest to specialists in contemporary Chinese policy, economics, and international relations, this book should also appeal to students of Asian and compilative politics and of international relations, and to all interested in Chinese affairs.|
