As it sought to tighten control over the restive borderlands, Mao's China moved from empire-lite to a harder, heavier imperial structure. That change triggered long-lasting shifts in Chinese foreign policy. Moving from capital cities to far-flung mountain villages, from top diplomats to nomads crossing disputed boundaries in search of pasture, this book shows Cold War China as it has never been seen before and reveals the deep influence of the Tibetan crisis on the political fabric of present-day China"-- Fourni par l'éditeurTable des matières / Sommaire: Cast of charactersChronology of main eventsPrologueThe road to LhasaImperial crises, imperial diplomacyBorder crossers : the Sino-Nepali frontierMuslim, trader, nomad, spy : the Sino-Indian frontierEpilogue: Worlds shattered, worlds reforged.Sujet RAMEAU: Guerre froide | Frontières Chine Tibet (Chine) 1945-1990Sujet géographique RAMEAU: Tibet (Chine) Relations extérieures Chine | Chine Relations extérieures Tibet (Chine)Type de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Etats-Unis d'Amériques
