China is a quarter of humanity. It has evolved through experience to a position in which it puts a question over the division of the world between nuclear superpowers, and gives tangible support to the idea of non-alignment throughout the world. It has been the recipient of more threats of nuclear bombardment than any other country in the world. This book documents these threats, from each superpower in turn, and shows how they have affected China's reaction to world affairs. It sketches the background and development of China's attitude to nuclear weapons, which needs to be understood by peace activists and policy-makers.
