ABSTRACT
This article discusses the development of the foreign policy of China as of October 1971. Since 1960 the U.S. has made halting efforts to improve relations with China. The relationship of the U.S. government with Taipei and its involvement in the Vietnam war made improvement difficult. By early 1971, the U.S. government had largely eliminated restrictions on American travel to China, relaxed the trade embargo on the sale of selected goods and allowed limited tourist purchases of Chinese products. The current phase of the foreign policy of China involves building a broad united front to alter its strategic position. The foreign policies of all countries appear to fluctuate between periods of zealousness and periods of moderation or quiescence. The Chinese fluctuations, however, appear to be more extreme than elsewhere. Yet another reason for the oscillating nature of Chinese foreign policy may be the existence of different opinion groups among the leadership, and fluctuations in their relative power. Historic opportunities are now present to involve China more fully in world affairs. We should welcome the challenge which previous generations have shunned, to build with a unified China the institutions which would draw China and the rest of the world closer together.
