0 Reviews
Relatively little has been written about the objectives and ideas that have shaped China's Middle East policy since 1949, and this book is the first major study of its kind. Lillian Craig Harris presents a detailed and authoritative analysis of China's Middle East policy in its crucial historical perspective. She examines the influence of Islam in China, dissects the impact of modern China's attempts to offer itself as a political and economic 'model' for the Middle Eastern states, and identifies the barriers to a closer future relationship.
