Looking for Research on Chinese Perceptions of, and Experience With, National Debt

I am looking for literature focused on China’s relationship with internal and foreign debt throughout its entire history, but primarily as the country began to modernize economically during the 1970s.  Any suggestions of books or articles focused on how debt has been viewed or used in China’s foreign or domestic politics would be greatly welcomed and appreciated. Thank-you.
