Sino-Soviet Normalization And Its International Implications, 1945-1990

By Lowell Dittmer

University of Washington Press, 1992, 382 pp.

This is not only the most complete study of Sino-Soviet relations in recent years, it is also impressive in its analytical scope. The author considers the relationship in terms of three key dimensions: patterns of economic development, the search for national identity and the struggle for international power and security. International theorists should find a rich source here.
