This publication of the Center for International Studies at M.I.T. is the most comprehensive survey of Communist China to date. It examines in detail "the three great strategic factors likely to determine the future evolution of Chinese Communism--the interplay between the régime and the people, the Sino-Soviet alliance, and the Chinese economy." The authors conclude that a number of internal problems which confront Chinese leadership could, if not properly managed, lead to serious crisis for the Communist régime.
