Behind the Bamboo Curtain: China, Vietnam and the World Beyond Asia. This major volume from the Woodrow Wilson Centre brings together senior scholars and analysts from seven countries including China and Vietnam, to reassess and set into context both US interventions in Vietnam and associated Sino-Vietnam relations. Archival records and verbatim notes of significant conversations between major players including Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Le Duc Tho and Ayuh Khan shed new light on the ever-changing interplay of personalities and pressures which affected events on the ground. Among the many subjects addressed in separately referenced chapters are: the earlier Indochina Wars; the French recognition of China and its implications for the Vietnam War; the Sino-Soviet dispute over assistance to Vietnam during the war; the late sixties' shift in China's policy towards the US. With extensive referencing, and index.
