Whither China: The View from the Kremlin

By Morris Rothenberg
Center for Advanced International Studies, University of Miami, 1977
310 pp.

Although in desperate need of a good editor, this book is an extremely important contribution to the literature on Sino-Soviet relations. It is not a book about China but about what Soviet leaders think about China and what sort of impact their thinking may have on Soviet global policies. Rothenberg, a former Soviet specialist in the State Department, makes two important points: that the China factor looms much larger in Soviet thinking than is generally realized, and that the Soviet view of China is by no means static. There is a good introduction by Mose Harvey.
