Unwanted Visionaries

This chapter shows how, faced with Washington’s hostility and their deepening international isolation, the Soviet leaders made an overture to China. Deng Xiaoping, although mistrustful of Soviet intentions, reciprocated to gain leverage vis-ò-vis the United States. Yet many policy makers in Beijing and in Moscow perceived improved Sino-Soviet relations as an ideological imperative rather than a tactical choice.
