＂What were the new People’s Republic of China’s policies to the Universal Postal Union in its early years? How did they help China promote its national interests in the world stage? Why did China train Albanian interns in the Cold War? Was it out of ’communist fraternity’ or was it part of China’s concerted public diplomacy efforts? And what role has China’s medical assistance to developing countries, especially those in Africa, played in its foreign affairs? Penned by well-known China’s international relations scholars, the eight essays in this volume attempt files answer those questions and more. Based on rich literature, including some newly declassified files from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this volume introduces some of the most interesting and significant, but lesser-known, episodes in the diplomatic history of the People’s Republic of China, and tries to shed light on their implications and impact on China’s diplomacy＂--Provided by publisher.
