About this Item

Title

  • A genealogy of bamboo diplomacy : the politics of Thai Dâetente with Russia and China

Summary

  • In 1975, M.R. Kurkrit Pramoj met Mao Zedong, marking the eventual establishment of diplomatic relations and a discursive rupture with the previous narrative of Communist powers as an existential threat. This book critically interrogates the birth of bamboo (bending with the wind) diplomacy and the politics of Thai dâetente with Russia and China in the long 1970s (1968-80).
