ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of China's political development as of April 1966. The Chinese case in international politics is somewhat different because it involves the political development of a society, which at one time represented one of the great civilizations of the world. The view of Communist China, arising from close study of domestic developments, is heavily influenced by judgments about the prospects of the Chinese economy. Specifically, it takes account of the fact that the Chinese do not possess any magic in the economic realm and will have to settle for the modest gains. The nature of economic development found by the researchers is easier to arrive at realistic appreciations of China's economic possibilities than of its political ones. Chinese political developments will follow along analogous lines, overlooking the fact that the economic possibilities are more circumscribed than are the political possibilities. Thus even though the past 15 years have been filled with unexpected Chinese actions, the tendency is to expect to find a more routine China in future.
