G. Samarani, C. Meneguzzi Rostagni, S. Graziani (eds.), "Roads to Reconciliation People’s Republic of China, Western Europe and Italy During the Cold War Period (1949-1971)", Edizioni Ca’ Foscari, 2018
This volume include essays originally delivered at the international workshop Italy, Europe, China: Economic, Political and Cultural Relations During the Cold War Years (1949-1971) held at the Department of Asian and African Studies of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice on 13th-14th February 2014 as well as invited research papers by two international outstanding scholars who have made valuable contributions to the study of China’s foreign policy and engagement in the ’50s and ’60s. The book illustrates recent trends in international research on China-Western Europe relations in the years of intense Cold War, complicating the long-held image of Mao-era China as sealed off from the outside world.
