A series of events in the early 19803, among them the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the U.S. boycott of the Olympics in Moscow, and the cancellation of the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT), ushered in a new cold war. In contrast to the trends toward detente and a multipolar world in the 1970s, characterized by the Kissinger balance-of power diplomacy which was designed to restructure the bipolar international system to a multipolar system, a shift in U.S. policy in the 1980s has yielded a new strategic triangle....–From the Introduction

The onset of adverse relations between the United States and China in 1981 prompted China to move towards the minimization of the Sino-Soviet conflict, a course that led to an interesting new balance in the relationship among the three countries. In this “strategic triangle,” China has been able to maintain a careful equilibrium in its relations with the two superpowers.

Against the background of these developments, a group of scholars specializing in this area of international affairs, and attending a conference sponsored by the Professors World Peace Academy, presented the papers that essentially comprise this extraordinarily illuminating book.

Beginning with a history of the relations between the three countries since 1961, the book continues with chapters on haw each of the three sees the relationship between the other two, and on how Japan perceives and is perceived by China, Russia, and the United States. There are also discerning essays on the superpowers and Korea, on the implications of the triangular relations for Taiwan, on the internal dynamics of Sino-Soviet-U.S. relations, and more.

The Strategic Triangle is especially significant in that it encompasses a range of theoretical models to explain and predict the triangular relationship, with careful attention paid to China’s role. It might be characterized as the state-of-the-art volume in the field. Both factual and timely, it provides superb fare for academics and intellectuals at all levels.
