Summary "The first volume of Historical Studies of Contemporary China offers an examination of some key events, developments, issues, and figures in China since the founding of the People's Republic. Drawing on rich primary and secondary sources, leading experts in the political, economic, intellectual, military and national defense, and diplomatic history of the PRC present insights and analysis on a wide range of topics, including emergency measures during the Difficult Three Year Period, the relationship between Neo-Confucianism and Marxism, the evolution of China's international arms control policies, the Chinese government's public opinion campaign prior to reestablishing diplomatic relations with Japan, the 'Kashmir Princess' incident, and others. These accounts will help readers form a more nuanced understanding of China's efforts to deal with an array of new problems while trying to recover from the ravages of two wars"--Provided by publisher
