China and the Soviet Union

By Aitchen K. Wu

Day, 1950, 434 pp.

A history of Chinese-Russian diplomatic relations from 1618 to the present, by a former diplomat of the Nationalist régime. Politely written, consciously dispassionate and reflecting considerable personal experience, it has a disconcerting tendency to become opaque and noncommittal at critical points in the narrative.
