This book examines Chinese participation in international non-governmental organizations, and the competing claims of the People's Republic of China and of the Republic of China to be the sole legitimate representative of all China in these organizations - the 'two-Chinas issue'. The author provides a detailed analysis of six organizations, including the International Olympic Committee and the International Council of Scientific Unions which have worked out formulae enabling participation by both China and Taiwan. These arrangements carry important implications for China'sre-unification with Taiwan.
