Area: International Relations

Few of the smaller nations today, particularly in south-east Asia, have succeeded in remaining unaligned with one or other of the great powers. Burma is the one that has.

This book traces the course of Burma’s foreign policy towards China since World War II. It shows how, though at times relations have been strained as during the anti-Chinese riots, Burma has succeeded in maintaining amicable relations with China without committing itself to the Chinese Camp. Though China dominates Burma’s foreign policy, it has not succeeded in making Burma merely a satellite state wholly dictated to by the Chinese regime.
