China's Diplomacy: Theory and Practice

by Yang Jiemian

published by World Century Publishing Co.

This book offers a comprehensive review of the Communist Party of China's approach to diplomacy, through an extensive evaluation of the major practices and theories behind the Party's diplomacy, with its main achievements in its 90 years of diplomacy highlighted. It delves into the views held by the Communist Party of China on the changing times, the international system, national interests, and developments in China's diplomacy. Other topics covered at length include China's traditional and non-traditional diplomatic practices as well as basic characteristics of the Party's diplomacy.

Few books have touched on the Communist Party of China's diplomatic history in detail. China's Diplomacy: Theory and Practice fills the gap by shedding insights on the Communist Party of China's global strategies and diplomatic planning, contributing to the building an international relations theory with Chinese characteristics. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of China's international relations from the forward-looking analyses on the Party's core role in leading China's diplomacy, and the theoretical explanations behind the practices.

  • “This phenomenal volume provides distinctive viewpoints of the Communist Party of China on international politics and China's foreign relations. For those who are interested in how China's diplomacy has evolved from carrying out a ‘revolutionary line’ to pursuing the ‘path of peaceful development’, this is a must-read.”

  • “This comprehensive volume seeks to lay out the ‘leadership and achievements of the Communist Party of China in China's diplomacy’. It takes a multifaceted approach, deeply rooted in the entire history of the CPC. For a foreign reader, perhaps this book's greatest value lies in its detailed explication of a Chinese perspective on the Party's diplomatic theories and practice over the past ninety years. As such, it provides many valuable insights.”
