China's Foreign Aid: An Instrument of Peking's Foreign Policy
China's Foreign Aid: An Instrument of Peking's Foreign Policy
By John Franklin Copper
Lexington Books, 1976, 197 pp.

A survey of China's foreign aid programs which shows relatively big Chinese investments in Asian Communist neighbors, North Vietnam, North Korea, and now Cambodia; a continuing commitment to Pakistan; and a new emphasis since 1970 on aid to noncommunist countries, particularly in Africa. The author also shows how aid programs virtually came to a halt during the Cultural Revolution and have since been revived.
