Chinese foreign economic policy before 1978 has been considered isolationist and centered on Maoist self-reliance. In this revisionist analysis, the author argues that the dramatic economic reforms initiated by China's leaders in 1978 were in fact revisions and expansions of policies from the Maoist period.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I would strongly recommend this book as an introductory text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. . . . Reardon has produced a book that goes a long way in extending the long and fruitful tradition of Chinese foreign policy study through an elite factional lens and incorporating fresh sources.

* China Review International *

[This book] adds to a growing literature on the nature of factionalism and policy formation within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It sheds new light on the processes by which policy is debated, policy experiments are initiated, knowledge is acquired by the elites, and struggles over future policy are generated.
