The Expansion of Russia in East Asia, 1857-1860
There is a large body of literature on Western incursions into China from this period until World War II, but the relationship between China and its largest neighbour has not been so well documented outside China and Russia. In this book, based mainly on Chinese and Western sources, the author explores the more subtle highs and lows of diplomatic relations between both countries, which laid the foundation for a longer lasting relationship from World War II onwards.
