- Publisher out of stock
This study traces Mao's use of a tripolar policy throughout his leadership, including the role of the Korean War in isolating China, the influence of Sino-US hostility on Mao's Cultural Revolution in the 1960s, and the initiation of `ping-pong diplomacy' with the United States to counteract the Soviet threat. The author offers an original insight into Mao's navigation of US and Soviet pressures while promoting socialist modernization in China.
