Edited by: Wang Yizhou, Tan Xiuying

Contributions by: Lang Ping, Jiang Fangfei

The relationship of China and the outside world for nearly a century is full of twists and turns and changes. For the Chinese nation, it's a memory with unforgettable sadness and happiness. As China developed from a semi-feudal, semi-colonial country to an independent, socialist, and powerful country, the Western-dominated international system has had a dramatic change in their attitudes towards China, from contempt and exploitation to hostile confrontation and blockade. The past 60 years have been some of the most challenging in China's history, especially with regard to international diplomacy. This book chronicles how China has emerged successfully from these challenges by mapping the country's diplomatic paths and achievements since 1949, including content from those at the heart of China's diplomatic service. It is an outstanding body of work that reveals exactly what China feels it has achieved on the diplomatic stage. It offers a useful background to China's diplomacy, and examines the participation of China in international organizations. Military diplomacy is explored and diplomatic shifts are also evaluated. This book will be of interest to academics, researchers, and policy makers. (Series: China Foreign Policy) [Subject: History, Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, International Affairs, Politics]~
